Good memory. I had forgotten Nino and Sbisa share the same agent.
The link is a few weeks old. I hope it still works.
Q:So you canít see any chances for Nino Niederreiter with the Islanders?
A:To be honest: Not with this GM and not with this headcoach.
You had a comparable, but not as dramatic situation with Luca Sbisa.
Sbisa too got relegated to the farm team, even though he was way too good for that. But you didnít do anything back then.
A:This situation was different:
I knew that the problem was Randy Carlyle, whose time was basically up with Anaheim. Luca Sbisa was highly regarded by the GM and we simply had to wait, until Carlyle was fired.
Q:What are you going to do now?
Iíll have some tough negotiations with GM Garth Snow when Ninoís contract is over in two years, anyway
. I want Nino Niederreiter on a team, that believes in him and that gives him a chance. It doesnít matter if this team is the New York Islanders or a different team.
