IPDAccording to a tweet from Katie Strang of ESPN NY, Nino Niederreiter is requesting a trade from the Islanders organization because he is unhappy with his current situation.
Who wouldn't? We totally shafted him. He was stuck with god awful linemates last year who he played better than whether the stats say so or not, so we send him down to the lockout and when he's doing amazing there the lockout ends, we dont even invite him to camp? And all these waiver wire pickups and busts and other nobodies get a shot over him? Thats a slap in the face.
Im definitely pissed though. Really was looking forward to seeing what he had to offer this year with good linemates, but idk if we will....ever maybe.
With that, **** you nino. Learn your god damn place, youre 20 years old and nothing of what you did last year gives you the right to think you're too good for the AHL, you did jack **** at the NHL level and deserved to be there to start this season really, even if its BS with some of the players who got the call before him. Grow up kid.
Let the speculation begin though... Does Garth call his bluff and keep him in the AHL? Do we fold and trade him? Or do we call him up?
His value is at an all time low right now Id say....
Niederreiter for Subban ??? lol I can dream right?
