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.
I agree with you about what a productive Strome could mean for this lineup, until the last sentence.

Even with Strome, we have Boyes on a top line and Nino/Joensuu/Ullstrom on the third. Those are not signs of a deep top-9. Also, Bailey still has to prove that he can produce like a second liner on the wing.
