I wouldn't give up much for Nino or PRV right now. The swap of draft picks is what makes this trade absurd. Barring another injury riddled season, there is no reason for the Oilers to finish in a lottery position, the Islanders on the other hand will likely pick in the top 5 again next June.

There isn't a fair sample to judge Nino's NHL career so far - he wasn't drafted to play a checking role, and I think his numbers will improve steadily over the next few seasons. I would take NN over PRV because I believe he will be a far more valuable commodity in 3-5 years but at this point neither have proven anything.
