. It has nothing to do with the team being "acceptable". Visnovsky has been screwed around a whole heck of a lot in North America, including royally by the Kings (my tied for favourite team, so I am being honest), always on terrible teams. Now at 37 years old he has been able to head to his hometown team, in a great league now since moving to KHL, where he is a key player on likely a playoff team and he wants to stay. This was pretty always going to be his last NHL season, I think he was just tired of the NHL and they way he has been treated. His skills are fine, he is a still a really solid defenseman, been one of the top defenders in the KHL this year.

He's also going to be talking to New York Islander management about it, so it's not like he is running from his contract, he'll try to do right by everybody.
