Skill and results are two different things. I agree Namestnikov has a little better physical skill than Strome, the mental part for both has yet to be proven that either is a number two center on a good team. At this point I think it’s Strome based on the second half last year and fact no one else has grabbed the spot YET. Strome was a high pick and has never had line mates like he would here, I think he’s a pretty good player that’s just never been given the right opportunity. The Rangers need Andersson and Chytil to step up and grab the gift wrapped opportunities in front of them, Chytil in particular is having a pretty mediocre camp. I see zero improvement in Chytil so far, while Andersson appears to be done with his after every whistle scrums that accomplished nothing, and has shown some signs of mental maturity and showing some effective on ice play.

Sure give Strome a shot there. Give Namestnikov a shot there too. You're paying him enough, make him prove his worth. Ultimately if a kid doesn't step up at some point this season and take the 2C spot, whether it's Chytil or Andersson or Howden (or someone else?) and you find yourself with Strome or Names as your 2C at the trade deadline - that's a problem.

Chytil's a better winger at this stage in his career. I'd rather not force him into a center spot if wing can get him more ice time. I still think it's a transition year for him, his feet are wet but he needs to carve out his niche and i don't think he's a natural centerman.

Yes I agree at some point in time it would be nice to see a kid in the second hole but that might still be a lot to ask. But with Andersson’s improved play the Rangers have three guys including Howden, and Chytil that could fill the two hole by February, or just load up one line and balance the other three. The important thing is they improve and the slots will look after themselves.
