This week we’ll look at how the Caps got rid of Strome, and how they managed to keep him at the NHL level even after he was traded.
Strome had been a top-pairing defenseman for the Caps.
In 2016-17, he was third among Caps defensemen in points (51) and fourth in goals (22) behind Alex Ovechkin and Dmitry Orlov.
In 2017-18, he had the second-best point percentage among all Caps defenseman in the NHL.
Strome was a solid two-way defenseman, but he didn’t necessarily play as much as he would have liked to.
For that reason, he probably would have been traded to a team that had a strong defenseman in center ice.
In this case, the Capitals decided that it was best to keep Strome in Nashville, where he would provide a depth defender for a team looking to make a run at the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
The Caps made a trade on March 1 that sent Strome to the Nashville Predators, who have been one of the better teams in the League.
He was one of three defensemen on the roster who played a total of 786 minutes and recorded 2 assists in his career.
In addition, he led the team in power play minutes at 13:30 per game and ranked first in shorthanded ice time at 16:15 per game.
He also led all defensemen with 14 points.
Strom had a career-high 36 points (11 goals, 24 assists) in 82 games last season, and he could be a solid addition to a Predators team that has been one to make big changes this off-season.
His NHL experience, however, didn’t translate well to the AHL, where the Predators have a young defenseman corps.
Strones point total was lower than his production in the AHL.
He didn’t play in all 82 games for the Predators in 2017-19, but Strome played in 11 of the 15 games played in Nashville last season.
That may be a reflection of how the Predators managed to sign Strome.
The Predators have three defense prospects in Jack Eichel, Filip Forsberg and Filip Chytil, and they signed Strome as a free agent.
If the Predators sign him, Strome will likely be on the team’s AHL roster, which would be his third team.
Stroker was a good addition for the Nashville organization, but his game wasn’t quite what it could have been.
Stricter did a great job in the first half of the season, but when the season started to wind down, Strom was a bit of a letdown.
He had only five points in 15 games for Nashville, but had an even higher point percentage (48.4) than his teammates (43.7).
His defensive metrics were better in Nashville than they were in the Western Conference.
Stroman played in all 14 games he played in last season and scored 12 points.
He did average a little more than a goal per game, but that wasn’t a major issue, and his plus-minus was high enough to make him a top defenseman.
Stryker’s biggest problem was his puck protection.
The Penguins drafted Strome at the No. 10 pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.
That’s not a bad pick, but the Pens struggled to develop his game in the American Hockey League.
Strelinski was still playing well in the KHL this season, finishing with 21 points (7 goals, 15 assists) and ranking fourth in the league in goals against average (2.14).
Strome struggled to get his shot on goal, but was solid defensively.
The Capitals drafted Strom with the No of the 21 picks in the 2016 NHL Entry draft.
He’s a talented young defenseman, and the Capitals may have found the best fit for their needs.
He has the size and skill to play on the power play, and has a solid shot from the point.
Strummers defensive game is a bit different from Stromes.
Strikers ability to win puck battles on the rush was what made him so good in the OHL.
Strickers physicality and ability to use his speed to get into the offensive zone were what made the Predators think he was an elite prospect.
His offensive game has also been improved, but it remains to be seen if he can develop into a true top-four defenseman.
It’s possible Strome can be a top four defenseman, especially if he continues to improve.
If Strome’s offensive game continues to develop, the Predators will be lucky to get him in the lineup every night.
Strouster has the potential to be a first-line defenseman in Nashville.
Strahin’s offensive skill and speed make him one of, if not the best, power-play defensemen available.
He could be an excellent second-line defender, but will need to develop a solid defensive game if he wants
