I think Joe Pavelski is a great comparison for Strome.

so you have doubts about Strome being a #1 center than?

Because Little Joe is great, but he is a fantastic #2 center, not a #1

Pavelski is absolutely a number 1 center on a number of NHL teams. He might be considered a tweener by many, but hell, if you are getting an elite "2nd line center" with a top 10 pick in the draft...most teams would take that.

I cant think of one team Pavelski is a number one center on. Calgary, maybe?

If he was a #1 center it would be like Brendan Morrsion between Bertuzzi and Naslund in their primes, does the job, but you always wish someone else was there.

This thread is about Strome so I wont derail any further....I could see the Pavelski comparison a bit though.

He honestly looks like a bigger Briere to me. The way he moves around the ice with the puck and that deadly slapper off the wing. His patience and playmaking around the corners. Dead ringer. Briere is 5'9" (if that) and is super effective in the NHL, imagine the 6'1" version of him... that's Strome.

My bold, gut prediction is that he is a riser and makes a late charge like Johansen did last year. Subsequently pushing Couturier out of the top 4 on draft day. Seems like a pretty special player.

That is significantly different from a comparison to Gagner. If he is more Pavelski than Gagner, that bodes well for his career.

Not that Gagner is bad, he just isn't near as good as Pavelski.

Strome

Ok, for those that have actually seen this kid play. What's the deal?

How is his speed?

Playmaking?

Sniping?

Toughness?

Size? room to grow?

defensive abilities??


I understand he is a Toronto kid so it's most likely his dream to play NHL puck one day. Does a team drafting between 3-7 this year take a stab at him considering they are pretty solid up the middle? Can Strome play the off side wing? Or Centre is his only projection? Can he forecheck and dig pucks out?

thanks in advance

Any chance he'll be moved to wing. Instead of playing 2nd line center, wouldnt mind having a nice righ handed playmaker on JT's wing.

How does Strome compare to Hemsky?

Future senator.

This is exactly what Ottawa needs, a pure sniper like that.

Yeah his one-timer is vicious. With the way Ottawa is playing, unless he gets picked higher than he's projected I would be surprised if we didn't take him unless someone like Landeskog/Couturier fell to us.

Same here. I'd love the Islanders to grab him. I personally think he could be a steal in the draft if he goes early.

Ryan Strome first overall

Best EV scoring rate for forwards in this years draft. Also tied RNH in points and is a bit bigger.

Is it possible?

I would love for the Avalanche to have the decision of RNH, Landeskog, Larsson, or Couturier with their pick.

But I think RNH to the Oil is pretty much set in stone.

Tambellini has that look in his eye when it comes to RNH.

Plus he developed right there in Western Canada so I think it's a given.

Strome is very good but I don't think he has as much propulsion behind him as RNH.

But I still think Strome could end up being the most talented player out of the draft. I've seen some clips of him that shows that he has speed and talent and those are two of the biggest ingredients to a successful NHL career.

I bet if he goes to Anaheim (like I think he will) he could be in the NHL next year a la Skinner and put up respectable numbers like 20 goals and 25 assists or something.

I know RNH has that swag about him. But his EV point production scares me. He didn't get any EV points in the Med Hat series, and only had 2 the whole series anyway.

WOW. This draft is ridiculous. I go from SC to Larsson to RNH now RNH, Strome and SC AND Larsson are considerations of mine.

Medicine Hat had 2 guys on him all the time... They pinpointed RNH alone...

If it weren't Edmonton picking #1, I could see that. I think there is intrigue about drafting a close to home guy.

IMO, big mistake to take him #1 and this is coming from a guy that would be happy to snatch him up with Atlanta's pick. I think he tops out like a 70-80 point guy. I'm gonna catch a lot of flak for this but he reminds me of Alex Semin. A very good talent but never a guy who takes over a game. RNH and Larsson and possibly even Couturier & mebbe Duncan Siemens have that "take over the game" potential. He's not a franchise guy so to speak, at least not as much as the other options at #1.

So you've obviously never watched either of them play? Alexander Semin is one of the few players in the league that can take over a game like nobody else. Strome also has the ability to really turn the tide of a game on his own, though not in the way that Semin can. Strome is very consistent though in his contributions.
