Careful....the projected Nino would give JT space. The NHL Nino I saw wouldn't even make it over the blueline without tripping.

The best thing Nelson and Nino have going is they are not being touched this year. No Islander ruination like all their other prospects. Strome didn't get 9 games. Both goalies aren't being Salo/Soderstom/Fichau'd.

Now I am no fan of Moulson playing like a patsy, but he does create offense and he does now and then play a little harder. And being honest, Boyes has the past few games shown his game of old.

They both have to be solid to draw defensive coverage from JT and they might do it, but last game the key pivot looked flat. Moulson wasn't helping. Boyes DID look better. Maybe we just have to be patient and hope Bailey and Okposo can carry their weight {and do it SMARTER now....not staying out too long}.
