So I guess El Nino has a problem with the Islanders. What do you think he'd be able to pull in for the Islanders, how much is he worth?
Unless there is something new, this is about a month or more old. Nino's agent was pissed that he didn't get a real shot to make the Islanders roster, and was stuck in the AHL earnimg something like 10% of what he'd make in the NHL. The Islanders have NO incentive to deal Nino at this point, so he basically has to suck it up and show he's ready for a shot in the off season. Add in that Nino's been playing well in the AHL, and there is NO reason for the Isles to move him when his value would be based on his TERRIBLE year last year. Pretty much a total non-story from my perspective.
Honestly I could totally be off base. Not sure or Moulson's value.
Moulson alone is worth more to the Isles then Hiller would be. I was once very high on Hiller but I am not sure he is worth nearly what he was due to not quite being the same goalie he use to be before his health issues.
Isles won't trade him, his size and scoring abilities are too good to pass up on. He can boo hoo now about not being invited to camp but what happens next year if he gets a shot to play with JT? He won't be crying then.
