Nino Niederreiter wants 'to make statement' next season

With an extra yr of development for his competitors,I'm not even sure Nino makes the 2012-2013 NYI roster.

http://www.newsday.com/sports/hockey...medium=twitter
Nino Niederreiter isn't the kind of player or person to simply forget about the past. He wants to learn from his ugly rookie season and hopes it can help him develop into the player the Islanders thought they drafted with the fifth overall pick in 2010.

Niederreiter isn't thinking about the minors either.

"I want to make the team. I'm not thinking about the AHL at all," he said. "I've been working out at home [in Switzerland]; now it's time to get back on the ice. It's a long way off to get to training camp. I don't have to be the best player right now."

I want him in Bridgeport,getting 1st line minutes.

It's too bad Thompson is headed to LI next season.He has a rep for being a demanding coach and getting good results.

Its pretty clear he's embarrassed about how his rookie year went. If he is in the NHL next year I hope he starts putting up some good stats.

Hopefully Capuano can get him off the 4th line.

Nino needs to get himself off the 4th line, not the other way around. Based on what I saw last year, he has a very long way to go. Bridgeport is without a doubt the best situation for him.

I think our NHL team has a demand for a guy like that as well.

There is only one team this guy should play for next season and that is the Bridgeport Sound Tigers.

Has Nino developed any chemistry with any of our centers? I'm thinking that getting a 2C and bumping Frans down to 3C could go a long way for Nino. Failing that though, as is likely unfortunately, I'm curious how Nino has been with Ullstrom or Cizikas.

Not trying to be rude but have you ever played organized hockey? You can have all the talent in the world but if your line mates have the hockey talent of a garbage can there is nothing you can do to ever have a chance at playing your game or showing your talent. Not saying nino is an all star but he needs some games with first and/or second line players to show his stuff.

Case in point Kreider playing on the first and second line for Rags right off the bat.

I agree, he also played like 6 minutes a game. He was out of position A LOT, which I think he was trying to do too much out there.

If you are touted as a top prospect, and can't make an impression with the Isles, then,,,

guess what?


You aren't a top prospect.

BACK TO THE POND, ROOKIE!!!!

I understand your point, but I think a big reason why Nino struggled was the lack of skill he was surrounded by.

A lot of players would struggle to put up numbers on a line with Reasoner and Pandolfo.

I'd have to agree here. Nino had two of the most unproductive players in the league on his line, not a recipe for success. Nino obviously wasn't ready for the NHL and he was mishandled where he was put in a position with almost no chance for any type of success. Rather than pin the blame on one thing, it was a total train wreck from all angles.

If niño truly earns a spot in camp this year I'd really have no problem with it as long as he's not surrounded by absolute crap once the season starts. He needs to earn a top spot not just the fourth line and if he doesn't then he needs to go down to Bridgeport until his game develops to a point where he is obviously ready to step into top line minutes.

Once this team was eliminated from the playoffs he should have been moved to JT's line to see what he has. In situations like this a few decades ago this was a given with a high draft pick on bad teams. Not giving him an opportunity to play with talent was a HUGE mistake in his development. Now we have to go the hard way.

I don't care if he scores 8 goals and 10 assists this pre season. he needs to be in the AHL for at least 60 games.

Agreed. Granted pandolfo and reasoner were lousy, but i think nino had maybe 5 great scoring chances all year. He showed no reason to believe hes nhl ready. And thats cause he clearly isnt.

Yes he absolutely played with terrible line mates last year but it was not like he was showing signs of breaking out as he looked out of place and indecisive. He just wasn't ready but he is still only 19 (20 when the season starts). I add my voice to my fellow armchair GMs that a stint in Bridgeport would do him good. If he excels in the first half of the year then maybe a callup if he has earned it. Otherwise a year at Bridgeport can't hurt him as he will still be just 21 heading into the 2013 season. Hoping this kid begins to show why he was a #5 pick and gets some confidence and his game at the Bridge. No need to rush him, let him go at his pace.

One of the things to remember about Nino is he's still really young - only 19 and doesn't turn 20 until September. There's still lots of time for him to work on things and develop.

Exactly, let's wait until training camp to judge where Nino is. A lot can change by then. I'm very confident that he'll bust his butt this summer and come back bigger, stronger, and faster. The kid has plenty of motivation.
