Okay, so it isn’t so much an epic as it is a slight rant regarding this player right here.
I admit in advance: I am biased. I enjoy watching Nino play. I love Swiss players. Plus, I think he has a lot of potential and his seasons played in Portland reflect as much. His ten-point performance throughout the 2010 World Juniors was also impressive. But compare those sparkling stats to the ones he has in his first 47 games played in his actual rookie season in the National Hockey League, and you’ll see a very different side of the story.
So what’s the explanation?
