Strome shouldn't take 2nd line duties without proving anything. I know what to expect from Nielsen..I have zero idea what to expect from Strome. Just because he was a top 5 pick, doesn't mean he will be better than Nielsen. Strome...if he gets the nod, will most likely be doing 3rd line duties...who knows..maybe even 4th line. He has to work his way up.

I don't mind Ullstrom on first line, but he is not a 1st liner and will never be. At best he will put up PA numbers...his ceiling is top 6.

I'd like to see Bailey on wing for half the season to see what he could do. I don't think playing center is his thing. Maybe in Junior it works, but playing center in the pros, doesn't.. He's got better hands than Tavares (IMO) and can easily get the puck to Moulson, while Tavares causes confusion/distraction. Bailey at least tries...Okposo would be the better candidate, but I just don't see it. KO needs fire...and someone needs to be there to light it every time it goes out.
