On the bright side for Isles' fans, after seeing Strome in the WJC a bit, the comparison that came to mind for me was Claude Giroux. And right now Giroux might be one of the top 4 or 5 forwards in the world.
Couturier has skill and good size, the Islanders should have drafted him, but they went for the "BPA".
