Strome is younger and cheaper, smart play by Edmonton to clear cap space and get a valuable asset with potential. Makes sense for NYI to as Eberle should mix well with Tavares, also Strome was never fitting in to well with NYI so smart play for both teams!

NYI won the deal, but not by all that much. Strome was already beginning to rebound under Weight and Strome is 3 years younger than Eberle. EDM also clears cap space for another possible trade or FA signing (many would sign with any team with McDavid on the roster).

Both sides walk away happy.

Oilers fans won't be happy. Chiarelli should have gotten a pick at least.

Snow really has this guy's number, doesn't he?

That is great for the Islanders it looked like Strome had lost steam declining not improving... Look how good it worked out for Devils trading for Hall only to get the NHL to ward them 1st overall pick for helping Oilers wink. I'm real happy for Islanders, Eberle is good for 20-30+ goals, whose size is more fit for Eastern Conference over Western. I'm glad Kings, Vegas, teams in west wont have to deal with facing Eberle anymore... Real changing of guard for Oilers when Hall/Eberle were part of their core. He had a bit of a rough post season which made him easier to obtain which I'm shocked Islanders got him for so little... Their chance to make the Playoffs again just increased 10-20%. Last time they were there Strome was a healthy scratch in a few games showing how they soured on him.

Wtf was the point of this. Strome will play one year on McDavid's or Draisaitl's wing, get 60 points and expect Eberle money.

As an Oilers fan I'm disappointed. Not even a damned pick with Strome.

The Oilers everyone, come get what you want 50% off.

Strome likely will take a discount to play with McDavid. I'd rather make 4m on McDavid's wing and be in Cup Contention for the rest of my career than make 6m on, i dunno, San Jose.

Hopefully, maybe. Yakupov looked real good on McDavid's wing too though. Nice chirp at San Jose btw

Good deal for both teams i think. For the first time EVER, Garth Snow made a good trade. It's hard to believe he did that. EDM wins this trade though too i think. Good deal for both teams.

Garth won the Leddy and Boychuk trades much bigger in my opinion. This trade was a nice one, but it wasn't straight up larceny like the Leddy and Boychuk trades.

Fans don't always know better. If NYI fans got their way, Garth would've have been fired (fired, hired, then fired again for good measure) and none of this would have happened. Now Isles fans are starting a Super PAC for Garth Snow's 2020 presidential bid.

I have to think EDM management knows what they're doing here. Best case scenario, they got someone who will produce at Eberle levels on McDavid's or Draisaitl's wing (Strome has before, though not as frequently as Eberle). Worst case scenario, they cleared 3.5m in cap space and still have a solid 3rd line Center for when they move Nugent-Hopkins (they will, they have to).

I see them giving Nuge one more chance. (One more bad season and he's done).

Oh, I don't think Nuge is a bad forward at all. I just think he needs to be traded due to his cap hit. Unless the Oilers decide to make Drasaitl a dedicated winger for the season, Nuge likely ends up as a 3rd line Center. If your 3rd line Center is making 6m, that's a problem from a salary cap perspective.

Haha wow. EDM should stick to not training. Spare me the three year age difference and potential. Strome is basically done developing he's going to go ride McDavids coattail and somehow EDM will think they won this deal like the Larson/Hall

Strome's still capable of a breakout. EDM will revive him.

They got cap space, and a young player with potential. EDM just glad to have Eberle's 6 million gone out the window.

You probably wont be able to afford keeping Strome whose cap hit is likely 3-5M especially if he does well. You need money to keep Leon, resign McDavid, not to mention guys like Nurse among others... Talbot has a year left at 4.1M cap hit if plays like did last year he will eventually cost more. So could be like 12-16M just to keep McDavid, Leon, Nurse likely least 1M+ even under the cheapest scenario... backup goalie might be adding to cost this season depending what they do. Talbot will probably be least 5M or more in cap hit to keep around, Lucic has a 6M hit for a good while. Strome is RFA so least they will get some compensation even if they don't keep him around. Maybe Pouliout is gone after this season to free up 4M to help retain Strome if that is the plan. Fayne think shows up as a buried contract so that will be gone, depends how much costs to keep/field a defense what happens too. IF read things right looks like they free up 4.6M in dead cap space after this season to help them in 2018-19. Nugent is only 24 so its funny how everybody wants to give up or trade him smile.

Right now I say it's a win-win for both teams. Don't be surprised though if the deal turns out to be won by Edmonton in the future.

Eberle > Strome > Spooner > Gagner
