Think about it if you have a project at work you don't want to do that was forced on you. Is it going to be your best work? Hell no.
Well I guess Nabakov is the ostracized example of that? The guy had no choice but to play for the Islanders, next thing you know when the guy finally throws on the sweater he becomes our best chance between the pipes night in and night out.

Keep in mind, if Viz plays well enough and the Islanders get a few phone calls, the guy might get his wish and get shipped off the Island.

You never play uninspired. You risk injury, you risk your reputation and you risk being able to further your career.
