Just my two cents......
I'm not "over-estimating" strome's impact. I understand hes not going lit the world on fire, but it's fair to ask him to be a top 6 forward and chip in 40-50 points. The only other rookie potentially in the lineup would be saban. And in regards to your comment about trading young guys, murphy isnt making this team anytime soon, harper is expendable, donnay is expendable, and we have 3 young guys in raddysh, saban, and mayo that wont get traded.
