100% right. If he won't retire, get him here, and try to trade him somewhere he wants to go. If you can't and he plays like crap, put him on waivers and send him to the minors. Wait on his retirement papers.

All this can be avoided by Visnovsky doing the right thing: retiring. He was set up... By Medvedev. He chose to trust the untrustworthy (Medvedev) and spurn the organization that would hold to its promise (the Islanders). The longer he plays this out, the more he compounds his mistake.
