Cons of trading Dylan Strome

The Blackhawks are a team that is built on their centers. They require the center to play up and down the ice, and they require him to be a leader no matter the situation. Strome has shown that he can play just that way, and he was a valuable team to our power play last season thanks to chemistry with his opponents.

If the Blackhawks were to trade Dylan Strome it would drastically hurt Alex DeBrincat. DeBrincat and Strome make each other better, and we saw that throughout most of last season. While DeBrincat was not great this season, he was better when he had Strome in the lineup with him.

I know that if the Blackhawks give Strome a shot, he is going to be a big part of the future of this team. The Blackhawks can go out and trade him, and yeah maybe they bring in a few draft picks, but draft picks are not a guarantee. Your young prospects are not guaranteed NHL players, there is a risk with every pick and prospect.

So why trade away a guaranteed NHL player in Strome, for an opportunity to restart with another young player? It is only a matter of time before Stan Bowman makes his decision!
