Snow's just a stubborn guy. Even in cases where the press gives him and the isles a beating, he sticks to his guns.

In the Nino situation, he's actually got respected members of the press like Campbell and McKenzie, throwing the isles props for their stance.
I wouldn't call the Isles blameless in this by a long shot but going to the press and calling the GM names and asking for him to be fired... Nino loses my sympathy, and hiding behind his agent just makes me side with the Isles even more for it.

If Snow trades Nino, and I don't see how he keeps him now, I expect it to follow the route of Jack Johnson in LA. It will be on Snow's timetable, and it will still hold the chance Nino can change the mood over time, but 95% chance he is gone at some point for a return need being filled.
