I've only seen the CAN-USA game so far, and bits and pieces of the Slovakia game, but Strome's playmaking has looked pretty impressive, IMO. I saw him set up a couple of defenseman with clear shot lanes from the point, who either missed or were stopped. I saw another where he made a pretty nifty move to get the puck off the boards and into the middle, and when the defender commited to him he sent a pretty feed to Drouin(I believe it was Drouin) who couldn't handle the pass. He had a pretty top notch scoring opportunity.

I wouldn't worry about Strome's playmaking game. If anything, you should be impressed that he's shown some good finishing ability to go with the playmaking aspect of his game.
