I think the Islanders rushed him but him producing in the AHL makes me think a limited 3rd line role with some PP time ie Bourques spot would be perfect. I'm not a Bourque hater but if you can get Niņo for any prospects not named Spooner Koko and Hamilton. I do it ....
How about Caron, Bourque, and a young defensive prospect? I'd like to see Nino get a shot at our 3rd line.

I haven't been watching, but how is it that he could not crack the Islanders lineup?
Islanders have a history of snubbing their young prospects. They don't even give them camp invites. I think that's one of the reasons Nino wants out.

And no, I don't get all the trade proposals shipping Subban out of town. Do people hate him that much?

And Caron still has some trade value as a former 1st rounder right?
