    Default Ryan Strome and Toffoli

    Hello,

    Would you consider Ryan Strome a bust now that he has failed once again to make the Islanders roster?

    Also, seeing that Toffoli also failed to make the LA Kings roster who would you prefer to have on your roster, Strome or Toffoli. Who has the better upside long term?

    Ryan Strome makes me nervous as a high end prospect, but it's way too early to call him a bust. But yeah, I was skittish enough to trade him and a high pick to get Drouin.

    And if given the choice, I'd rather have Strome on my farm than Toffoli.

    Lol that question makes me laugh.....talk about an overreaction. Is there a such thing as a bust for a kid that just turned 20 years old? Whose to say someone doesn't get injured or the Isles start losing and he gets called up and starts racking up points in a few weeks or months? Both Strome and Toffoli are still top prospects but I much much prefer Strome and it's not close.

    I don't think he's a bust, I actuallly think it's a good thing that they don't rush him.

    I onwed both of them at one point and I traded Toffoli because I think Strome will have more opportunity.
