Someone posted that McKenzie gave an interview and supported the isles position in this Nino situation.

Now Ken Campbell writes about Nino and the need for teams to not quit rushing these youngsters.
NHL teams wise to play cautious with prospects

NEW YORK Exactly what a player such as Nino Niederreiter has done to merit making a trade demand is one of the great mysteries of this season. Not sure if anyone has bothered to check, but the kid has played 64 NHL games for the New York Islanders and has as many career goals as Martin Brodeur.

In any event, its heartening to see there are some organizations that have learned the lesson that rushing players into the NHL is potentially a recipe for disaster. In all the time Ive covered this game, I have yet to encounter a single player whose career was ruined by being brought along slowly and methodically. On the other hand, the scrap heap is littered with players who were placed into situations they were not prepared to handle.
