He certainly doesn't look like the best player on the ice or a top 5 1st rounder. Nelson does, Niņo doesn't.
Nino's doing what I'd hoped to see him do: crashing the net, going to the dirty areas of the ice.

He's 15/16 games into his first AHL season.

I'd be a lot more concerned, if he were playing a perimeter game. The coaches will be working with him on his weaknesses.
