In-season trades and player moves in Hurricanes Talk Posted May 5 · Report reply 11 hours ago, canes2017 said: nino had been dropped to their third line- wasn't getting the playing time and results reflected that. He is not the first nor last player that fell out of favor with their current team- and got a boost in production in a new setting( see skinner, jeff). Yeah but how did that flash in the pan work for Buffalo ? He lit up the beginning of the season, got the press, and then took his usual vacation. Whereas Nino is still playing hockey, not golf, like Skinner.
