Players whose games rely on hockey sense generally do badly in these comparisons... It doesn't make a lot of sense.

Comparing Strome to Granlund makes a whole lot more sense. Both have great vision, good releases, tend to dart in and out of the play, but aren't straight-line speedsters. Both are in awkward positions this year with the shortened seasons. Granlund has an add'l year of development so is with the big club.

If NYI brought Strome up he would be struggling, like Granlund, except likely worse. Because he is a year behind in development. Given the way both players play, a full camp would have been a big help to both, and would have given Strome a better chance of making NYI.

Cheers,
