I've always had a soft spot for the Isles being friends with Mick Vukota and I'd have to say that Snow is doing this team no good. Nino at minimum should have gotten a camp invite and IMO should be up with the Isles right now. I don't see the Isles making the playoff so why not have the kid learn on the job and get experience under his belt?
This team has some decent piece to build around but it seems like the only way Snow wants to build is via draft and that simply wont do it. As a hockey fan I'd rather see this forward combo's this season then what Snow has rolled out
Moulson - JT - Okposo
Grabner - Strome - Boyes
Ullstrom - Nielsen - Nino
Martin - Reasoner - Cizikas
I proposed this deal in the B's thread cause I'm a huge Nino fan and thought I'd see what you guys though. IF Snow gave in and said he'd move Nino would you guys do Malcolm Subban for Nino Niederreiter straight up? This would give you guys one of the best goalie prospect in the game AND if Snow grew a set he could try and pry PK away from MTL (via trade or offer sheet).
