Lisin would be of no use to a contending team. Maybe a rebuilding team would take him on, but clearly those teams are not trading picks or prospects.
Someone like NYI might like him. Schremp has been decent for them, they might what another reclamation project for the final 20 games.

In 2006-2007, Lisin refused assignment to the AHL. He did play parts of two seasons in the AHL after that, but there's a real chance that he heads to Russia if he feels like he's not going to get another real shot in the NHL.
