Nino actually looked pretty good before his injury. He was creating offense, playing physical, constantly around the puck. He didn't look like a 19 year old kid.

That said, after he came back from his injury he just looked overwhelmed. Honestly though, it looked like he started to come around towards the end of the season. The only problem was he was stuck on the 4th line, so the opportunity for points wasn't really ideal.

Would I have liked to see him put in a few more than he did? Obviously yes. But I'm not going to say he's "ruined" because he didn't put up any points as a 19 year old 4th liner on a bottom-5 team.

Most Isles fans will probably disagree with this, but I expect him to start the season on the big club, playing on the 3rd line with Nielsen and Grabner. I'm pretty confident that he'll have a productive year if placed with those two.
