You do realize that he's still just 19 years old, right? He's still no physical specimen. The question with him revolves around his physical maturity and development IMO. The talent is there and he's been showing it since being drafted.
I think after a year at Bridgeport to get acclimated to the professional game, he'll be that legit #2C that the Isles have been looking for. Frans could then slot into his #3C and we're not that bad up the middle. Brock Nelson could make some noise too so Strome has got some serious competition - a good thing.
