The difference is that Strome hasn't proven himself a 2nd line center yet. Eberle has proven himself to be a 1st line winger. Strome will very likely become a 2nd line center, but nothing is a guarantee, even Rob Schremp looked like a lock to be a 1st liner at one point. Unless Hamonic is part of the package, the Oilers have no reason to do this deal.
