Visnovsky Arbitration Hearing Scheduled for 9/4

According to Larry Brooks of the New York Post, the arbitration hearing for Lubomir Visnovsky will be September 4th. 

On draft day a few months ago the Islanders acquired Visnovsky from the Ducks for a second round pick in next years draft.  However, a month later Visnovsky filed a grievance to block his trade here.  Hes attempting to block it on the grounds that a NTC he had part of the contract before he was traded to the Ducks is still valid and he shouldve been consulted before being traded to the Island.

If Visnovsky wins the hearing then he will remain Ducks property and the trade will be voided.  However, if the Ducks win then the trade will go through and he will be an Islander.
