This has nothing to do with love or hate, just from the preseason games I watched (maybe 3) I did not think he looked overwhelmed at all. I think he looked like any rookie starting his first camp yet in an adult body which gave him an edge. He certainly didn't turn heads but he wasn't invisible in preseason either. After a groin strain and a concussion in between a stint where he actually looked decent he never got back into a strong role with the team and played with losers. That's all there is to it....
like i said: didnt watch any pre-season games, so i honestly cant judge from them. But i did notice that the isles played with only prospects in two of the prea-seasoners, if nino didnt look good in those games he should clearly gone back to juniors.
As soon as the nhl started he looked weak. I dont think it was his fault or is a strong indicator about his upside, but he still stank.
