Chris Botta weighs in on Twitter:
Two scouts, all over the OHL playoffs, on #Isles first round pick Ryan Strome - Is he a potential first-line forward in the NHL? Scout 1: "At worst, he's a second-line, 50-point player in a few years, and could be a lot more with good development." Scout 2: "Yes. Big talent, good habits." Do you think he should be in the NHL or OHL next season? 1: "OHL. Let him get stronger. Don't rush." 2: "Learn from Niederreiter. Let him play a few NHL games in October and then get his ass back to junior."
