We are severely lacking that outside of Tavares and Moulson among our forwards. Love it.
The best part about Strome(if he wins a spot) is what he could do for guys like Bailey and Okposo. Having a guy as talented as Strome playing between those two could really spark them offensively. I expect to see Boyes get a shot on the top line(then Nino if Boyes fails), leaving Bailey and KO on line two. The potential for a quality top-6 lies in the hands of Strome, IMO. The trickle-down effect would be tremendous as well, considering that would bump Nielsen to the 3rd line to center Grabner and one of Ullstrom/Nino/Joensuu.

It's almost crazy, but if Strome makes the team and is successful in year one we should have one of the deepest top-9's in the league.
