Confirmed @KatieStrangESPN report that the agent for @thelnino25 asked #Isles for a trade, but team will not move him.
I know he's between a rock and a hard place with guys not showing up and drafted assets wanting trades...but Snow's intransigence on stuff like this is probably a big part of why guys don't want to be Islanders. It would make more sense to maximize the return you can get for the asset ASAP and move forward with guys that do want to be there.

Also, the first quote sounds like a veiled...not exactly threat...bullying tactic, maybe? Punk kid doesn't have the stones to tell me he's unhappy to my face...

Doesn't foster a desirable working environment.
