It really is no excuse for Nino to have a horrible season last year. Granted he probably got around 6-7 minutes of ice time on that 4th line but even a blind squirrel can finds some acorns. If Nino was so good he would have had some more points on that line and force management to put Nino on a scoring line or at least the 3rd line with more quality ice time
Being 19, getting 4th line minutes with energy players and coming back from a concussion is kind of an excuse. People forget that he actually looked pretty good before the injury. It was post-injury where he struggled.

Not going to judge his upside on last year. It was a horrible situation.
