I think they are looking for Strome or Brock Nelson will develop into a 60 pt 2nd line center.

As for Gagner...I wouldn't be surprised if he racked up assists alongside nail.
Yep - I really like Strome, and think that he'll be a very strong player for the Isles. Edmonton's been drafting "Coke Machines," looking for a player like that, but I'm not sure that they have one in the system. Every team with a smaller centre as the first liner would like a strong 2nd centre who can play, but they're remarkably hard to find. I think that Strome will be one of them.
