Nicely said and I agree. Right now Strome has to battle JT and Frans Neilsen down the middle for quality scoring time. Both are entrenched in the #1 and #2 centre roles. Obviously, Neilsen is replaceable down the road but right now, he's solid in that spot.
It would be nice to see the Islanders actually take some time with a top prospect for a change and bring him a long at a pace that wont ruin his development. That have a history of doing that.
