He's going to be a work in progress.
I think he'll be an upgrade to someone like Ralston, who's clearly lost a step (Nino is probably quicker) and just doesn't have the chemistry with Bailey and Comeau. Nino also has a big body, he's physically mature for his age, so I don't think he'll be the detriment against the boards that you do. He actually didn't look that out of place in the 9 games he played with the Islanders last year.
