As for Lubo, I could see the Islanders taking this case to an arbitrator if Visnovsky does not report...and tolling his contract.
The Islanders were already above the Cap floor last year withthe signings of Staios and Pandolfo. Nino started the season on the IR with a severe groin strain. They Held on to Nino because they thought he was ready not for the salary floor like most people thought. It was the Running over (concussion by head shot) by Fistric which sccrewed up his season. The Ilsanders after that hoped that working with Striet, Wieght and Pandolfo that Nino could turn it around. That was the failure and If you watch any of Nino's AHL games I think its all behind him.
