A contract is a contract. Regardless of CBA and lockout there is an agreement between NHL and KHL for this. How does vis think this is fair?

Saying they don't pay him is all fine and dandy but let's not excuse it for what it is. He's being a baby for being traded to NYI. Go play vis. Honor your contract.
So now, suddenly a contract is a contract? Where were you when Jeremy Jacobs wanted to roll-back every player's contract 24%?

Visi is in the wrong but he's acting independently - the NHLPA is not telling him to do this and actually he is failing in his duties as an NHLPA member as well. The contract IS legally binding to the extent that if the player does not meet the criteria of the contract he will not get paid or will get penalized and so on. Vis will be penalized so that's the end of that.

You can't force someone no honour a civil contract, if he doesn't want to honour it he just won't get paid - it's pretty simple. If the case were to go to court it wouldn't even be interesting as Vis and his associates can easily claim family disruption and so on and he won't even have to pay a penalty. I doubt the Isles really pursue the matter.
