Visnovsky will have to earn his minutes. I do not see Capuano splitting up AMac/Hamonic as they have played together for a long time and if Capuano can cut their minutes down a bit especially because of the more grueling schedule they are our best shutdown pair. At least initially I could see Vis getting 3rd pairing minutes with Carkner during even strength (together with additional minutes with someone like Strait or Hamonic/AMac if Streit or Hamonic/AMac needs to rest after PP/PK or potentially 2nd PP unit with AMac to allow Hamonic to get more of his minutes on ES/PK). If he plays well I could see him and Streit swapping even strength minutes
