I get that Isles fans are upset, but seeing as how Visnovsky first acknowledged that if Islanders forced it he would return to NA, then said he could stay, what other explanation is there other than it was indicated to him that the Islanders had given permission? Perhaps there was a miscommunication, but I see no other logical explanation...
Vis really doesn't want to play for the Islanders... Don't forget it was Visnovsky that tried to claim he had an active NTC right after the trade to New York happened. That was pre-lockout, pre-KHL contract, pre-everything. Visnovsky just plain doesn't want to play in New York for some reason...
