    I think it's a decent deal for both teams.

    Who is going to kill penalities for the Pens?

    Archibald, Hagelin, Rust, Rowney, maybe even McKegg. DiPauli if he's called up.

    Archibald and Rowney won't even be playing. How are they going to kill penalties from the pressbox?

    Why not? He deserves to play. Reaves should sit. If that trade were to happen:

    Guentzel - Sid - Hornqvist
    Jokinen - Malkin - Kessel
    Sheary - Strome - Rust
    Hagelin - Rowney - Archibald
    Reaves and McKegg as extras.

    Reaves isn't going to be a healthy scratch, and having only 4 PKers on your team isn't even close to enough.

    Obviously the Oilers are never going to move Strome on this quickly (nor the Pens with Sheahan.....but the stakes are alot lower there) but I would love to take a shot at a player like Strome. Is frustration with him really that high among the Oiler fans?

    As far as Jokinen, looks like his price is alot lower. If there was a million in cap space going spare I would l0ve to see if he could rekindle some of that old magic as a Pen.

    Really don't see why Edmonton does this.

    They might trade Kuhn (not likely because Sully loves him) or they might trade Sheahan (not likely because they just traded FOR him) but yeah, they won't trade both together without a known PK entity coming back, as overrated as they are.

    Honestly, EDM is dying for a reason to move Strome. I hate being overly critical, but the guy came in as the favorite to play RW with 97. He wasn't able to keep that job which is pretty bad considering our lack of wing production. JJ hasn't been much better (and point totals suggest he's worse...YIKES). So yes... Oilers accept.

    Hold on, Strome is a failure because he isn't above Leon Draisaitl on the RW depth chart?

    No because he's bad enough that EDM is forced to play LD at RW instead of C so that Mcdavid has competent linemates.

    Take out Sheahan and Strome and it makes some sense. The Oilers have no reason to move on from Strome so quickly. Kuhn could help out with the PK, but he's pretty similar a forward to Pakarinen is he not?

    I would think about this as a Penguin but I doubt that Edmonton does it.

    Eberle -> Strome -> Sheahan/Kuhnhackl ...I mean, ouch.

    Before I said yes or no, has Juicey J been playing center at all recently? Not sure how this impacts the lineup...not sure either are the 3C that we need.

    Jake-Sid-Rust
    Hags-Geno-Kessel
    Sheary-JJ/Strome-Horny
    Archi-Strome/JJ-Reaves

    Hags/JJ, Archi/Strome, Rust

    Yikes. I suppose Sid could maybe take a draw or two if needed.

    The thought was Strome could play RW1 and allow 29 to run his own line.

    I think most Oiler fans know that Strome wasn't really a piece Chiarelli wanted, he just couldn't dump Eberle for anything better. If we could get something that fits better, then we'll take it. I think most Oil fans are being unfair with him though.

    Strome or Hornqvist could be tried on the PK. Can't be worse than McKegg.

    The problem with Strome is people were expecting a 30 point player to magically become a 50 point player here. 30 point NYI Strome is 30 point Edmonton Strome.

    Things won't get much better as long as he's centring guys like Khaira, Jokinen, and Pakarinen.

    Most games I couldn't tell you if Jokinen was even dressed, let alone at centre. He's been the dictionary definition of meh. Not getting scored on, but not creating much either.

    He looked good in the preseason and seemingly had some chemistry with RNH..
    For some reason McLellan decided to go away from that pairing and put Lucic with RNH instead.

    The point is he was expected to play with McDavid. 97 is a considerable upgrade to anyone he skate with NY, Tavares included. I don't think it was unreasonable to expect his output to increase from as you say, 30 to 50, when you consider he does already have a 50 point season under his belt.

    I think Strome is a reasonable 3rd line center with upside. He's played well with offensive linemates but hasn't gotten the chance to play with many so far. I hope him, Cammalleri and Slepyshev/Caggiula can find good chemistry as a 3rd scoring line. Strome is a good passer who's comfortable carrying the puck and with 2 shooters i think that line can be solid.

    As for Strome not being able to play with McDavid the guy played the first 2 preseason games with him and was productive, Draisaitl on that line has more to do with giving McDavid help with faceoffs, dzone coverage, and producing consistently as that line is being tasked with harder matchups as part of McDavids development, plus they don't want to bury Nuge for a 3rd year.

    Strome is still a young center and he's on a new team for the first time, no need to run him out of town since up until 2 games ago he was literally our only productive bottom 6 forward.
