Yesterday, after practice, Ryan Strome was asked whether or not he pays attention to Jordan Eberle’s stats seeing as he was the sole return in the trade for the former Oiler. Rather than get upset by it, Strome handled the question in stride and played right along.
For an NHL player, it must be tough to have to answer questions in relation to a trade that you had no part in completing. Aside from being the return in the trade that sent Eberle to New York, Ryan Strome had no say in the deal regardless of what fans or media think about it. When asked whether or not he follows how Eberle is doing in New York, Strome had some fun with the media.
Q: “Do you pay attention to Jordan Eberle’s stats?”
With Eberle’s Islanders in town tonight, Strome’s sense of humour may be called upon once again as it almost seems likely that both players will be asked about the trade. Maybe this story will be done after tonight’s game? We doubt it.
STROME’S SEASON SO FAR
