They were not invited to camp either because Snow wants them all getting 20+ mins a night, which they wouldn't get in the 48 game NHL sprint, that we'll see played out this season.

Which top 6 player, should have been bumped for Nino's 1 nhl goal and strong 36 AHL games?
Moulson's had 3 straight 30+ goal seasons.Nino's not bumping Tavares.
Okposo is coming off a career high 24 goals.
Grabner's been the isles best player out the gate, after playing well in Europe.
Bailey played the best stretch of his career in the last 19 games, so they want to give him a long look at 2nd line lw when he comes back. He's ready to start skating and will push Boyes.
Nino doesn't play center, so he wasn't bumping Frans Nielsen.
True, but most kids at least get to show up and "pretend" to compete for those spots.

He didn't get that chance at all. And being clearly used for the cap hit last year rotting on a 4th line, i could see him having reason to be upset.

would by ironic if he asked to be sent to the AHL last year.
