<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>ChiHawk</b></div><div>Strome is miles better then Kerfoot and isn't going to cost much if anything more on bridge. Hawks have Toews, Strome, Dach, Kampf, and a good prospect in Barratt who's turning pro this year. Barratt is projected as a 3rd pairing in a year...maybe 2. Hawks simply don't have the cap space to bring in Kerfott, Strome will be bridged at $3.5m to $4m, for a downgrade. They will sign Strome and if Dach continues to progress and Barratt is as advertised, then they will consider trading Strome at the TDL, next offseason or the TDL in the following season. There is zero reason for the Hawks to waive the flag on Nylander and bring in a worse 3C then what they have today.</div></div>
why would strome accept a 3.5 mil bridge from a (regularly should be) non playoff team after a season where he was on pace for 54 points in a full season as a 6'3 200pound 23 year old centerman? He'll get a minimum of 4.75M on a bridge from many teams, probably more from a center-starved team like minny, and could get traded for a pretty good package. You can't deny that its a decent possibility that he gets moved, and that Barratt should not be relied on to be the 3C early in the season, as if he's such a great prospect, you don't want to have to force him and harm his development if he's not ready for that role.
