Pros of trading Dylan Strome

Trading Dylan Strome would give the Blackhawks an asset in a position that they need more help. Imagine if the Blackhawks could bring in another top-level defenseman, or top winger that could play in the top nine next season, maybe that could be worthwhile.

The Blackhawks are not guaranteed to re-sign Strome at this time, and they have shown in the past that they are capable of trading young assets instead of offering them a final contract. Think of players like Brandon Saad and Andrew Shaw that were traded before given a new contract.

The history books have shown that trading Strome is likely for Bowman. He might be able to bring in a great draft pick to help with the team’s young farm system moving forward and he will clear up some cap space for the future.

If Strome is asking for more than three or four million then I would consider trading him too. I think they are going to need to offer him a bridge deal of two or two and a half million, and I hope he takes it because I still think he is apart of the future.
