Dylan Strome would make a lot of sense for the Chicago Blackhawks to trade.
The Chicago Blackhawks have a player in a similar situation as Jake DeBrusk and that is Dylan Strome. Strome is a former third overall pick by the Arizona Coyotes that was traded to Chicago for Nick Schmaltz. It was a good trade for the Hawks at first but Strome has been in the coach’s doghouse for most of Jeremy Colliton’s tenure.
Under King, things have been a little bit better but he could still use a change of scenery. That applies to both DeBrusk and Strome here. For Dylan Strome, he would probably be able to go there and be the second-line center in between Taylor Hall and Craig Smith. They could then move David Pastrnak back to the top line with Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand.
They could also use Strome as the third line center or move him to the wing. If they used him as a centerman, the group with him Bergeron, Charlie Coyle, and Erik Haula would be really nice. If they signed David Krejci back after the Olympics, things would be even better down the middle for them.
Each player traded here could thrive with a new system in new colors. Getting more production from that extra roster spot would really help each team win more games and have more depth. They are both supremely skilled but might just need new situations.
