Strome's IQ is extremely high...just another reason to have taken him in the draft.

He outscored everyone of significance that the Sens had in camp this summer...and with the way the Islanders weigh intelligence in their drafting, it was no surprise.

Oh, yeah...kid's pretty good with the puck too.

So if it's not the size, the grit, the IQ, the puckhandling, the lack of high end talent, what's the knock on him?

Why isn't he more hyped?

Bringing it every night was a supposed knock... there'd be tons of hype if he belonged to a Canadian team or any other team with large outspoken fan bases.

Because he was drafted by the Islanders.

I don't think its out of reach, he's insane. But a second line centre is much more of a certainty. Being switched to the wing is also a possiblity.

Absolutely. Could be the next Doug Weight. But. That said, it's still potential and not fact.

They don't really need him to be, they just need him to be a #2 center behind Tavares, and I think he's got the potential to get there. 50-60 points a season, maybe a couple up in the 70s, but nothing that blows anyone away. On some teams, that'd be a #1 center, but I doubt it on the Isles.

I don't see superstar potential in Strome, but he seems like a real sure-bet to be a very good player.

I think he will either be one of the better second line centers in the league (~75 points), or he will be a good first line winger to Tavares, ala Simon Gagne in his prime.

Personally, I think New York should send him back for his final year of juniors next year. Can't be too safe, especially considering what happened to Josh Bailey.

I see him more as a future #2 C. A slightly better Sam Gagner is his potential, imo.

Right here, mix Strome's speed with Tavares' lack of speed but amazing hockey IQ, should see some magic soon in the Islanders...just need these damn prospects to develop and STAY there.

The Isles really need to develop him properly, but seeing the way they handle most of their prospects I think he will be in the NHL next season. Hopefully not though.

With the way they are playing they could end up with a line of Yakupov-Tavares-Strome.

That would probably be the most talented line in the NHL

Not after Wang is done screwing them up. He's already destroying Tavares' developmental years by forcing him to play with bottom 6 wings and one top 4 defenseman per shift, next he will rush Strome up before he is physically ready for the bigger bods, and Yak he will probably find out signed a contract with a KHL club for the next ten years.

75 Points as a second line center?

how many first liners even get that many?

I'll be very disappointed if Strome becomes a slightly better Gagner.

Good for 40-45 pts,while providing weak defense and crappy face off numbers.

Since foolishly rushing Bailey in 2008,which NYI prospect do you feel was rushed?

2009-Tavares made the team.De Haan was sent back to juniors and is in th AHL now.

2010-Nino went back to juniors,Kabanov went to juniors and Nelson to college.Nino is on the NYI roster this season.Many fans do think Nino should be back in juniors.

2011-Strome was sent back to juniors.Since he is physically small,I find it hard to believe he'd be kept over prospects who have added weight,developed wellsince being drafted like Kabanov/Ullstrom.

Maybe I shouldn't have used the word rushed, I feel mishandled would be the proper word for it. Nino in my opinion is being extremely mishandled this year, do you feel he is ready? Because I really don't, and it doesn't help that he is getting very limited ice time on the 3rd-4th line. He could be playing as the star for the Swiss at the WJC right now, and playing top line minutes for Portland right now. I wouldn't mind him staying in the NHL this season, but I feel he is not being given the proper ice time to rapidly develop.

He is really the biggest prospect that comes to my mind outside of Bailey, but he is a big kid and may end up alright, I just do not want to see Strome on this roster next season because in all likelihood he will still be too small and won't be 100% ready yet.
