Dylan Strome is an interesting player with the Chicago Blackhawks right now. He could be in the top six, healthy scratched, or traded before the season even begins. Let’s walk through all the different options.
The Chicago Blackhawks could use a player like Dylan Strome, or they could trade him before the season begins and start fresh.
Dylan Strome still has some value around the league. He is at a good price at three million dollars and could be a great top-six center for an NHL team. While things have not worked out in Chicago as of late, another fresh start might be the best option.
Strome was healthy scratched a lot last season towards the end of the year. Let that sink in. On a roster that did not have Jonathan Toews and Kirby Dach towards the end of the year, Strome, arguably one of the best centers available at the time, was healthy scratched.
There are a lot of different ways the lineup could look next season, but one thing is for sure. Strome seems to be the outside piece looking in again. With the additions of Tyler Johnson, and now Dach and Toews back this coming season, Strome is going to have a tough time finding a spot centering a line, which means he would be moved to the wing.
Rather than try and move him to a position he has struggled at in the past, it might be best to find a trade partner for Strome and move forward. So let’s look at a few teams that might be willing to trade for Strome.
