2-3 games ago Nino was a healthy scratch
He's playing with his confidence shredded and needs a full season in the AHL.
I do think he could easily become a good 3rd or even good 2nd line winger. Who knows, maybe a decent 1st line winger. I was actually writing my above post at the same time that you were writing yours, with both posts containing some of the same points. I'm definitely not writing him off, and agree that he should play in the AHL next year to get some confidence back, I'm just wondering if this is something that has actually never happened before (top 5 pick, 50+ games in rookie year, 0-1 points).
