      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

[Rumour] Nino Niederreiter wants out?

Recommended Posts

I think Snow had no intentions of him playing with the team yet. They wanted to take the Detroit approach at leave him in the minors for one more year. There's nothing wrong with that, so they decided it's no use bringing him to camp. Nothing wrong with what they did. Why is everyone siding against Snow's decision? I don't get this. You guys talk like you what is going on. We really don't know the details. Maybe he showed up to camp out of shape and decided not to bring him to camp as a punishement? Who knows.

By the looks of all, he still needs time to develop. And he really should take time to develop another year in the minors. Wether it's on long island or somewhere else, he needs to do as he is told by people that have done these things in the past and developed players properly before.

He's talented, no doubt. But as everyone knows, scoring and keeping a high level in the AHL is quite a bit different that doing it in the NHL. Still, I wouldn't mind having him. I'm sure he will get his chance and be an elite player in the league in the future.

If the Islanders all of a sudden want to change their philosophy on developing young players and leave them in the ahl to develope that's fine. But you don't bring up a 19 year old player, play him with absolute plugs leaving him little chance to succeed, and then not even give him a camp invite after he was one of the best players in the ahl during the lockout.

The point is he shouldnt have been in the nhl as he clearly wasn't ready at 19 years old, then after having a really solid campaign in the ahl they dont give him a camp invite when he actually might be ready? Sounds pretty damn backwards to me.

I would be open to Nino any day. He was misused by NYI last year as most have said. I enjoyed watching him playing while he was in the WHL for Portland. It was always exciting when he got on the ice.

I think a change of scenery and a non fourth line role would do wonders for the kid. I wouldnt complain if that was in VAN

So you figure he could step into The Canucks 3rd-2nd line? If the Canucks got him they would probably put him in the minors to give him a good look before putting him on the big club. Of course if that happened a pile of NHL 13 GMs on here would be screaming for Gillis or AVs head.

Nino is the real deal. I'm guessing a young highly touted prospect + 2nd rounder might work and Snow would make the deal. They don't seem to want any salary back on the isle.

I can see Calgary trying to do something, rebuilding on the fly.. however im not sure what they would have to give up.

:rolleyes:

Well, we still have Raymond, and while on his game does what Grabner does (almost). Believe me, If we could have Grabner and Ninno for Lou I'd be thinking REALLY hard. But does Josh Bailey not fit our needs more?

I also wondered why we were never in on the Boyes reclamation project. A big RW who played top line most of his career, at $1 mill for a cap hit, would have been a great way to make Kass earn his minutes, also free up Burrows to play with Kesler FT. He could still be a throw in on a deal.
