A team that develops talent for other teams to trade for at the deadline once they become ready for prime time.
You are wrong.

Nilsson is sick. Don't let anyone fool you. He has incredible vision and loves making long passes that are right on target. He's more of an assist man, but he's really good at it. He can score goals when he has the chance, too. There's a video on youtube of his goal last year (against the WB/S Penguins, ironically) where he got the puck on his stick and skated behind the goal and put it in lacrosse style. He and Ted Nolan didn't see eye to eye, which is probably the reason why he didn't settle in with the Isles this year. He's not really a grinder; more of a skater. He was leading the Bridgeport Sound Tigers in scoring this season and should be even more productive on a team as talented as the Penguins. I think he will thrive in Edmonton, and as long as he has a good camp he should definitely be playing in the NHL next year. Expect a slow start while he adjusts to that level (he hasn't played in the NHL since last season), but once he gets going he isn't going to look back.
