The New York Islanders forward that can be the most frustrating to watch is Ryan Strome. Although he’s turned it around lately and has shown positive signs.
The reason Ryan Strome can be the most frustrating forward for the New York Islanders is because we know his potential. It doesn’t seem like all too long ago when he was putting up a 50 point rookie season at Nassau Coliseum.
His production has certainly dipped since then. Over his last 110 games he has just 14 goals and 39 points. Although recently he has played much better under new head coach Doug Weight.
I got on Strome for his costly mistake in Detroit. It was deserving at the time, his icing was a knucklehead play. The reason I got on him is because I know he’s better than that, and he’s starting to come around under weight ever sense then.

In his 12 games under Weight he’s got 11 points. Almost at a point per game production. His play has earned him a spot on the top power play unit which has been much better as well.
Maybe Strome just needed a new voice after all. He seems to be playing much both offensively and defensively. It was pretty clear Cappy wasn’t getting through to him, maybe Weight can finally steer him back on the path to stardum.
Strome’s got a ton of potential, and he’s starting to play up to it. Let’s see if he continues to play like this.
