That's somewhat alarming for a 5th overall pick from the outside looking in, so I suppose you could understand why someone would be under that impression.

Also, I think some of you are misunderstanding this concept of a "change of scenery", or at least the concept in this example. Bridgeport is the same system. Surrounded by many of the same personel, and same prospects, answering to the same higher ups about your development and expectations. That's not exactly the change of scenery I was theorizing. However, I understand why the isles wouldn't want to trade him. At this point they wouldn't get what he's worth to them in a trade... Certainly not a player like Couturier or Schenn, who have proved a significant amount more than Nino at the pro level...
Is being a year older, a number 5 pick, and having 12 g and 8 assists in 63 games really better?

I'd say that Schenn certainly IS fair value. But neither team makes that trade.

Why don't you say what you think is a fair offer for him if you don't think a similarly aged, similarly unproven, similarly drafted prospect is fair?

(I'm thinking "something" + a 2nd)
