I find it difficult to be critical of Niederreiter here, until the full story is out. He was crap last season, and has worked his ass off this year and done well. I think this all comes back to the fact that the Islanders didn't invite a few players to camp. He feels he has something to prove, has done well and they didn't even want to have a look at him. Sounds small and petty, but I can see that being the bigger issue than still being in the AHL.

I just hope it is resolved, would hate to see the Blackhawks or Wings picking him up.
