Also if we wanted strome/mcdavid together the top two could be:
Strome and McDavid would be a sick scoring line with crisp to add grit and protection. Fox-Cairns-Brown work very well together for whatever reason when they played together (ex:the early january game against Sarnia). Lots of options, I am pretty optimistic about this season.
I saw this in comments last year, you guys seem to over-estimate the impact young guys can make in your line-up. Expecting Strome (who will be very good) to contribute that much off the get-go is a huge leap.
Not to mention, I don't get how trading that many pieces of your future for one defenceman puts this franchise on the road to sustainable, long-term excellence.
Just my two cents......
