NYI scout Ken Morrow, told James Mirtle the team erred n keeping Nino upin the NHL.

Looking at Morrow's comments and Snow offering all of his 2012 draft picks for Columbus 2nd overall,but not including Nino,I think it's a good bet that the isles still value the 19 yr old, as the 5th overall pick.

Snow won't be buying high and selling Nino low.
