Latest on Visnovsky

Well, the NHL lockout hasn't even been over for a full day yet and there is already drama in Islanders Country surrounding summer acquisition defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky.

Earlier this evening, reports came out that the Slovakian club Visnovsky has played for during the lockout made him a contract offer to remain with them and he was seriously considering it. 

Kevin Schultz with pointblank reports that it is unlikely for Visnovsky to stay with his Slovakian team because of the large amount of issues it would cause between the NHL & KHL.

With all the commotion Visnovsky has created since his trade here and his apparent reluctance to come here he better play well once the season starts.  If he doesn't, his time in Uniondale will be very unpleasant as Islander fans have a long memory and wont forget things like this and the grievance he filed with the NHLPA over his trade here over the summer.
