Both 20 yr old Nino and 22 yr old Donovan, have been named to the AHL all-star team. Isles didn't invite either to training camp. Snow's comments indicate that they wanted Nino anyway, playing top line mins in all situations and if he wasn't gonna being doing that on LI, they wanted him doing that in the AHL.

Would all the fans boohooing about Snow's low risk waiver pickups, still be boohooing, if Snow had given Nino the spot Aucoin will take? If the isles had penciled Donovan into the #6 spot and taken only 1-2 of Hickey/Strait/Finley ?
