I have no worries about Nino if he is playing in the correct role.

If he is centerd by Tavares, Strome, or a Nelson he will be fine....
He is meshing well with Nelson, both averaging over a point a game, both averaging 0.6+ goals per game. I'm a huge Nelson fan as well, but I can only imaging what Niņo would do with a season as Tavares' linemate. Obviously Tavares is in another stratosphere than Brock Nelson.

I was a Boedkker fan for the 2008 draft, wanted the Isles to pick him instead of Bailey. This is a tough call, Niņo is really playing great at this moment, and he JUST turned 20, so I think he has more upside than Boedkker. It really is close though, still think Boedkker can be a damned good player.
