The comparison here should be Couturier or Zibanejad, guys who play in the same position. And yes, i take Couturier over Ryan all day. Anyway, i think that draft was weak, so Strome was a nice addition.

If the Devils had not won the lottery, Adam Larsson would be an Islander.
Everyone knew Couturier was more mature and NHL ready at the time. Strome has a much higher ceiling. I think Couturier is one of the most overrated players.
