Dylan Strome is living his NHL dream playing for the Arizona Coyotes, staying in a hotel and avoiding the harsh Pennsylvania winter he endured the past three years playing for the Ontario Hockey Leagues Erie Otters.He just doesnt know how long it will last.Strome was the No. 3 overall pick in 2015 and he is in hockeys version of purgatory: At 19, he is eligible to be sent back to the juniors without burning a year of his contract as long as he doesnt play 10 games.In the NFL and NBA, when youre drafted, youre in, and Major League Baseball prospects almost always start in the minors.NHL teams, however, get the chance to test-run some of their top young prospects before committing to them for a full season.No one feels bad for you, Strome said. Its not really up to me. Obviously I want to be in the NHL.In the same uncertain spot are Coyotes teammates Jakob Chychrun and Lawson Crouse and others around the league, from the New York Islanders Anthony Beauvillier and Mathew Barzal to the Calgary Flames Matthew Tkachuk. Despite making their teams opening-night roster, the players face a nerve-racking nine-game tryout -- and decision time is near for many of them.Its normal to have that kind of tryout because you never know what can happen, said Beauvillier, whose contract will count for this year if he plays his 10th game Tuesday. I dont control that. I just control what I do on the ice.The NHLs transfer agreement with the Canadian Hockey League prevents major-junior players under 20 from going to the American Hockey League for some professional seasoning. So even though Strome had 111 points, Tkachuk 107 points and the Toronto Maple Leafs Mitch Marner 116 points in juniors last season, they must remain in the NHL or go back to juniors instead of spending time in the minors.Once considered a top player in the 2016 draft class, Chychrun slipped to 16th and pondered the rule often during camp. But he has played well enough to get into seven games and give himself peace of mind.Now that Ive gotten a taste of the level here and just seen that I can play here, I think Im just trying to really just act like a pro, Chychrun said. You cant play when youre stressed. Youve just got to act like youre sticking here, and if you do that youll have a better chance of showing them why.Easier said than done for Barzal and Strome, who have been out of the lineup more than in it. Coach Jack Capuano implied that a roster crunch could prevent the Islanders from keeping Beauvillier and Barzal all season, but Arizona could let Strome and Crouse practice, learn and wait rather than making them essentially repeat a grade level they already aced.The Coyotes sent Max Domi back to juniors two years ago and watched him dominate and blossom as a result, so coach Dave Tippett understands the nine-game barrier but doesnt dwell on it.Were more in tune of making sure that were doing everything we can to make it so they can play here so the nine games doesnt matter, Tippett said. We have to give them every opportunity, whether through extra coaching, extra workouts, critiquing their play -- everything you do to try to make sure it gives them the best chance to be successful.The Philadelphia Flyers approach was to take the nine games out of the equation entirely with 19-year-old defenseman Ivan Provorov and forward Travis Konecny, telling the 2015 first-round picks before opening night that theyd be around for the entire season. General manager Ron Hextall told them pointedly, This is not a nine-game tryout, so neither had to worry about that.It definitely gives me a little confidence, it allows me to play my game and be comfortable, said Konecny, who has a goal and six assists in 10 games and is in the NHL to stay. He wasnt going to bed every night stressed out (about whether) Im going to get that phone call.That phone call came Monday for 2016 No. 9 pick Mikhail Sergachev as the Montreal Canadiens sent him back to the OHLs Windsor Spitfires after just three NHL games. Along with Provorov and Konecny, Marner and Pavel Zacha of the New Jersey Devils are up for good and Chychrun is all but assured to stick.Meanwhile, Barzal, Strome, Crouse, Tkachuk and Thomas Chabot of the Ottawa Senators must wait.You just kind of have to put in the back of your mind, Crouse said. Its going to be there, but you kind of just have to store it in a spot where youre not thinking about it day in and day out and just really go out there and show them that you deserve to be in this league.

Memphis success has been in employing two bigs in forward Zach Randolph and center Marc Gasol.The Nuggets are emulating that with a pair of 7-footers in Nikola Jokic and Jusuf Nurkic.In the NBA theres a herd mentality. Golden States doing it, so lets do it; San Antonio is doing it, so lets to it, Denver coach Michael Malone said. We dont want to be a team that follows the current trends. We look within, see what are strengths are and what allows us the best chance to have success. The team that comes to mind is Memphis. Memphis is the outlier. They play two bigs, and theyve had tremendous success with that.The Grizzlies have changed things up this season, bringing the 35-year-old Randolph off the bench. That was Denvers plan last year with Jokic, but he started 55 games because of injuries to Nurkic. Jokic showed what he could do, including stepping out on the perimeter to knock down shots, so Malone has started the pair together and brought Kenneth Farieds instant energy off the bench.The results have been mixed, but that says more about Denvers youth than the lineup. The Nuggets have impressive wins at New Orleans and Boston but threw away their home opener -- their only game at Pepsi Center so far -- and came out flat against Detroit oon Saturday.ddddddddddddEmmanuel Mudiay stole the show against the Celtics Sunday, scoring 24 of his 30 points in the first quarter, tying a franchise record for one period, in a blowout win after a heart-to-heart talk with Malone after the loss to the Pistons.I was trying to be as aggressive as I can be, Mudiay told The Denver Post. Me and coach had a discussion, the whole team had a discussion, and we looked at ourselves in the mirror.Memphis is trying to find some consistency early in the season while Randolph is still adjusting to coming off the bench after years as a starter.Were not where we want to be as a team, trying to adjust to the new system and the way were playing, Randolph told The Commercial-Appeal. We just have to stay positive and stick together.The Grizzlies have lost two in a row and are 3-4, while the Nuggets have a chance to end a five-game road trip at 3-2. They are nearly a complete team after getting back guard Gary Harris and forward Darrell Arthur, who spent his first five NBA seasons in Memphis before being traded to Denver in June 2013.The Nuggets are missing guard Will Barton, who sprained his ankle in Toronto a week ago but is close to returning. With nearly everyone healthy, some may see playing time go down.Its great to get healthy, but now that we have more bodies available, tougher decisions have to be made, and when Will Barton comes back its going to be even tougher, Malone told The Denver Post.
