Now they've also got Halak, and Reinhart should be ready next year too. Looks like the rivalry might heat up again just in time for their arrival in Brooklyn.

Or they could, you know, keep being the Islanders.
They did a good job of bringing up Strome slowly... I watch a lot of AHL games live in the NY/CT area, and out of the young centers that played in the AHL that region, Strome was the best.

This past season had a couple of young kids as No 1 centers in the Northeast AHL teams, including JT Miller, but Strome was by far and away the most dominant one. A real fun player to watch, wheel house playmaker, and just oozes hand skill, hockey sense with a dynamic skating ability, he can flat out embarrass the less fleet of foot defensemen.

After Strome I'd say Weal, Vey, Miller, Namestinkov, Khoklachev, and Pageau are all knocking on the door as far as young centers in the AHL Northeast go.
