You know why Visnovsky's situation is different (as if I should even indulge this)? He's walking out on a $3 million dollar contract to make $7 million in Russia. Tim Thomas is staying home and not getting paid anything, not demanding a new contract or extension, not demanding a trade or anything else.
Again, I haven't seen too many vilify him. Certainly no more than say a guy like Michael Vick.

Most who have issues in this thread have a issues with the cap implications. That is all. Period.
