I'd argue he will be back as soon as this season. This lineup is very capable of going into an epic slump. A 20-year old power forward who is one of the AHL's leading goal scorers would almost certainly be one of the first call-ups.

I don't doubt Nino is disappointed, that said I'm guessing he expressed his disappointment and it's now being misconstrued as "wanting to be traded".
