I have to disagree with everyone in here regarding this season being good for him. In the end he is a scorer, and there is no way he walks away from this season anything but dejected. His confidence with the puck, shooting, etc., all of it will come away with a scar. You don't go from fat point totals to essentially nothing without it effecting you negatively. IMO, this season was a disaster for his development psychologically, and that is and always has been a big part of the game.
I don't think you have a clue as to what type of player Nino is. The style of play a kid has in Junior =/= the style he'll play in the NHL.
