With that line of thinking, the Isle players would have balked at Nabokov joining them.

The team wouldn't be waiting on Vis' son's surgery, looking to have Vis join their overworked top 3 of Hamonic/Streit/MacDonald.

Nino's agent has already said, in his latest comments that he expects tough contract talks with Snow in 2 yrs. Nino's telling fans that it's all his agent's doing (bs excuse).

Bottom line is, Snow shows no intention of moving Nino, while Nino and his rep have no way to force Snow's hand.
