correct. The contract would expire and he has no contract for next year.

But he'd be in breach of contract for not reporting this year though. Technically, as of Monday 10AM he's in breach.

If they do toll his contract they retain his rights for next year. And he cannot play anywhere else next year either, even if he retires.

It's in Visnovsky's best interest to report to the Isles if he wants to play anywhere next year; in the NHL, KHL, beer league (for $), or any other professional league.

This is another reason why this situation is a ridiculous joke and so poorly handled by Visnovsky. You gotta question this guy's brain, the advice he's getting and ignoring, completely incompetent.

If you make all this money, at the very least, surround yourself with those who can help you deal with things you're not great at - like contract negotiations, public relations.
