What has Ryan Strome done?
He's led his team to the semi-finals and final, has over 100 career goals, is well over a point per game player, and I believe scored at least a point in all but one or two career World Junior games.
No player from the 2009 PS has more points than Strome's 322 in 259 regular season and playoff games.
Championships in this sport are not won by a single player, but he's been a huge part of all of the teams he's played on and their success.
His potential as an NHL'er means very little to his OHL team, as they got an elite OHL player out of him regardless of what he does in the future.
The fact that he didn't make the Islanders is not surprising, as the NHL isn't a league for teenagers.
It should not be used to knock him.

This is worse than your argument that Day shouldn't go first overall because Ryan Murphy has never won anything either.
Hear! hear!
