Everything about Strome's game says centerman. Even more so to the point: every international tournament, this one included, natural centermen are shifted to the wing when put on his line. He posses the vision, developing all-around game, faceoff ability, and all necessary traits of a ceterman.
I think people say that so much because we have Brock, and Strome seems like a better fit for that 1st line RW(especially since he's a RH shot, and our only other RH winger is Okposo). Personally, I would be disappointed if the Isles move Strome to wing, although at this point I'd say that is very unlikely.

Should be interesting to see how this Strome/Nelson/Nielsen situation plays out. I expect Strome to be the 2nd line center of the future, and I don't see Nielsen going anywhere. IMO that leaves Nelson either as a winger here or trade bait. Curious to see how/when it plays out.
