Nino failed gloriously in the NHL, but he picked right back up in the AHL this season so I am not overly worried about him being ruined by the bad season. The consensus is that is why his agent pushed the "Trade Me" button after he was bypassed for a camp invite despite impressive AHL numbers. I think he will be a very good wing one day, possibly as soon as two years from now. And this is from someone who would still take Cam over Nino 7 days a week.

I think I am going to link between the two threads because I want Islander fans to see opinions of folks who watched him every game. If Cam had some horrible defect in his game, certainly, you guys would be all over it.
