Let the doubters doubt and try to pick Strome up on the cheap is my recommendation. He plays an unassuming game that makes people think that he doesn't have enough intensity. But when you watch him closely you see that he is very good positionally and he finishes his checks. He knows where to be in the ice and thinks the game well. Despite what other will say being 6 ft and 180+ pounds at age 19 is not small.
Tonight his team was down 5-1 with 5:26 left in the game, then he proceeded to assist on 4 straight goals to bring Niagara level. Finally, he capped it off with a shootout goal as Niagara completed the comeback.
He now has 50 points in 26 games, including 29 points in 10 games here in November. Not to mention that he is a +30 this year, leading all OHL players. Let's not forget that he put up 105 points in his draft eligible season, at the age of 17, which is something that very few players manage to do. Now thanks to the lockout he's getting extra development in juniors, which will only benefit him in the long-run as he gains his man strength.
Go ahead and doubt him, but you won't find me doing that.
