He spent 1 year with the Isles buried on the 4th line. Now, he's producing with the Sound Tigers and wants an opportunity to have a shot with the big club. He's obviously ticked off he wasn't called into camp and he showed that when the Sound Tigers scrimmaged the Isles before the season started by scoring and playing a heck of a game.
But he's 20 years old and didn't do well last year because no one is going to when he's buried on the 4th line. But just because he says "he wants a trade" doesn't mean anything. The Isles aren't giving up a top prospect after they've been all about rebuilding since the Muilbury era.
Doubt he gets moved. Snow won't get full value for his former 5th oa. Plus why is he demanding a trade? Cause he's in the A? I doubt many teams would be willing to give him NHL game time after last season.
Schultz and Erixon didn't have any legitimate grievances. Nino on the other hand actually has a good reason for wanting out. Maybe it's not a matter of him whining about having to play in the A and instead about how the Islanders have managed him so far?
What, you mean paying him NHL money last year instead of sending him back to junior? Or burning off 2 years of his entry level deal by now?
Or do you mean how they killed his development...I mean, he is only top-5 in the AHL in goals as a 20 year old. Kid is done.
