Statement from L. Visnovsky: "I have decided to stay and continue my career in the KHL for the remainder of the 2012-13 season...
Quote:
"I am thankful to the #Isles for being so good to me. My decision not to play in the NHL is due to family and personal reasons...
Quote:
"I have made no decisions on next season. My focus now is on Slovan Bratislava, and enjoying my family in my home country."

Quote:
Further to @StapeNewsday breaking story (Visnovsky is staying with his KHL team in Slovakia), the Isles will suspend him once season starts

Quote:
Visnovsky forfeits his $3M salary. NYI will contest his $5.6M cap hit; could look to reverse trade again. (They lost 2nd RD pick for nadda)

Yea but I didn't think he would play for them anyway, he tried to get out of the trade once already. You could almost see it coming that he would pull some kind of **** like this when he went over there, he never wanted to play for the Islanders.

I have a feeling there are going to be more doing the same. I'm betting there are quite a few guys mulling it over right now.

Ovaries was on the first flight back to DC when news broke.

He was never going to stay in Russia.

Sucks for the Islanders. They could have really used Lubo on the blue line.

NHL says it's been assured KHL won't let players with valid NHL deals play in KHL. Guess that "assurance" will be put to test. #visnovsky

#NHL dep. commish Bill Daly, via email: "We have an agreement with the KHL that would preclude Mr. Visnovsky from continuing to play...

"...in the KHL once the lockout is officially lifted. I assume that agreement will be respected." #Isles

He knows the khl & NHL have an agreement. So this is just his way of saying "TRADE ME RIGHT FUKKIN NOW" and then hang up.
