When did I say the Islanders prospects are overrated, besides Nino, Comeau and Bailey? I'm probably one of the biggest "fans" of Tavares here and am miserable you guys have him, he's an absolute stud. Strome is the dynamic player you've been needing for a while now, since you went with JT over the flashier Duchene (which I agree with) and will be an integral part of your top 6 more likely than not.
I think Nino can be a very good second line player, possibly first line tweener in the mold of Dubinsky. But Kreider's tools are absolutely ridiculous and if both he and Nino can play at the NHL and overcome their lack of hockey IQ, Kreider is in position to be the better player. I don't know how you could possibly say Nino is going to dominate the NHL while Kreider won't because Nino's put up gaudy numbers (not even as ridiculous as a smaller guy like CT) in the OHL.
