He skates very well and has very good speed," NHL Central Scouting's Chris Edwards said of Strome, who's been compared favourably with rising Colorado Avalanche star Matt Duchene. "He's a creative playmaker who sees the ice very well. He goes to the net and battles in front. He is able to get to rebounds and loose pucks in front. He has good hands and has scored some goals off tip-ins in front (of the net)."
6'1 183 pounds. not bad size either. my money is on this kid if we draft 6th. If we don't pick him i'll be disappointed
Why? Fans shouldn't wish for any guy as they a) don't know how to actually scout
players and b) they will most likely be disappointed. Most fans just go by stats and rankings, and then the actual team has their own completely different list. You always see fans wishing for a guy, Dung on the pick they actually get, and then cheer for that pick when they are doing well in the future.
Be happy with anyone they get.
Not ture as I am an exception to that. I wnet out with an NHL/OHL scouts daughter as well as him being my hockey coach. Def know what Scouts look for both the postitive and negative aspects.
I stand by my comment.
I would too on an internet forum, I could 100% be talking out of my Donkey.
and by fans, I'm talking about most non-connected fans like myself (although I feel I am pretty knowledgable when it comes to prospects, and I don't get caught up in rankings and hype).
Look at this prime example of a fan who thinks he knows what he's talking about:
Not to be outdone by his wheeling-and-dealing counterparts, the Senators GM traded up three steps so he could take ... Erik Karlsson?
"Nice way to show your thanks to the fans for their support," said Brian Samuel, a regular ticket-buying customer at Scotiabank Place who was sitting in Level 2 wearing a Senators jersey and surrounded by his buddies in Leafs and Blackhawks colours.
"That's a garbage pick. They could have had him in the second round."
and a quote by Don Brennan:
Karlsson won't play in the NHL for a year or two or three, if he ever does. Real tough to get excited about him now.
That's a Cussing stupid quote. Most players picked at #15 won't be in the league for a year or two anyways. That's why they're picked at #15. Idiot.
Moral of the story, whoever they draft, wait a couple of years until you judge the pick, good or bad.
