Isles Select Ryan Strome 5th overall

Tonight, the Islanders made Ryan Strome the newest member of the Islanders organization by taking him 5th overall in the amateur draft.

It was speculated by some that the Islanders would take Stromes teammate big defenseman Dougie Hamilton, however they opted for the highly skilled offensive player in Strome. From what I read Strome is friends with Tavares and Moulson and sometimes trains with Tavares in a gym in Cananda.

Ryan according to scouting reports is an excellent skater with great offensive skills and superb stick handling ability. One of the things he could use improvement on is, his two way game.

I know some of you hope for a guy who can step in right away, however according to BD Gallof Strome is a few years away, few meaning 2-3 in my opinion.

So what do you guys think of taking Ryan Strome 5th overall?
