I like Sjostrom comparison for Nieves. I think the kid could develop into a solid bottom six player, but the offensive toolbox just isn't there. It's not just a matter of shooting more, I think the feet are just a heck of a lot faster than the hands and the playmaking.

The thing is, speed almost always has a place in the game. Even if someone isn't a scorer, if you can have a guy who can cover a lot of ground, you almost certainly have some value.
