Enter Visnovsky who I still think can run a PP and improve our fortunes there.

Our team needs to make the playoffs with an important free agency coming up, in order to become an attractive destination once more.

Our youth need to get a taste of playoff hockey as well so they can mature and realize the work it takes to become a staple playoff contender.

With Visnovsky's unstable relationship with the Islanders front office, can Toronto explore a trade opportunity, which would ofcourse be contingent upon Lubomir coming back and playing for Toronto.
What would it take?
That bad relationship angle won't fly.

Isles 0 for 19 pp needs Vis. Get back to Snow at the trade deadline.

"It's a great thing, I think," said Frans Nielsen , who lost his spot on the point of the first power-play unit with Visnovsky's arrival. "We've got two of the best power-play quarterbacks in the league . . . he's a great player and he's going to help us."

Visnovsky said he was surprised by the warm reaction he received from his new teammates.
