    Strome had 3 in 37 to start the year, and 4 in 57 going back to last year. Same thing.

    He's shooting 20%. When that comes back to normal, he's a 10-goal player, just like Namestnikov. I just like Namestnikov's transition game a lot better.

    wow, talk about cherry picking stats. Why not just compare what they've done is Rangers? What do you think names would have done on Edmonton?

    He's just pointing out the obvious. Both have good elements to their game, both lack any kind of real finishing ability. Both also had success playing with premium players but it's easier to slot a winger in to that situation than a C.

    I like both, but both are overpaid.

    You cherry picked a 25-game sample, I chose a 57-game sample. It's the exact same thing.

    What Strome has done as a Ranger is meaningless, because he's shooting 20%.

    What Strome did in Edmonton is meaningless because he only shot 3%

    Sure. What Namest did in 25 games is meaningless because he shot 0%.

    The point is that they're both bottom-6 forwards who can't score, so evaluating them against each other based on goal scoring is pointless. It's like choosing one of Tanner Glass or Cody McLeod based on assists.

    Ok, so stop making statement about who is "better" and just tell it like it is, you happen to like one players better for a non-quantifiable reason. Same as you disliked Brassard for a non-quantifiable reason.

    I have liked Strome's compete level; well, Vlad's too since whatever brain surgery happened in the Quinn Bin. I will wish both of them good fortune, because neither one is here on 10/1/21, right? They will each likely go out as part of a mind-numbing rotation of placeholders, spare parts, and unbroken colts until then.

    This has all the earmarks of a classic "cleanest end of a turd" debate.
