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.

After 5 yrs of stockpiling prospects, Snow has a glut of unproven prospects.
So, he won't move Nino in a depth trade or for 2-3 players with lower upside.

Just like when he's shopped his last 3-4 lottery picks, demanding 1 young player with very high upside back, Snow would demand 1 young, potential stud in exchange for the 1 young, potential stud he's giving up.

Nino's agent has given 2 post trade demand interviews and in both, he indicates that he doesn't expect Snow to trade Nino. At 20, Nino has no leverage to force a trade.

His pouting means little to Snow.Probably as much as Nabby or Vis's pouting did.
