No the vote ended 8 AM but they're not announcing the results until the Memo of Understanding is signed (per agreement with the NHL), so presumably it passed otherwise they wouldn't bother with the wait.

Nothing can begin until the document gets finished and signed later today though.

#Isles booked flight for Visnovsky today. He wasn't on it. Appears this will be settled between NHL and KHL now.

Also, I believe this is the plot of Taken 3.

Honestly he has made it clear from day 1 he doesnt want to play for the Islanders. If i am an Islander fan or player i dont think i want him in that locker room at all.

Let the NHL and KHL work it out hopefully his contract gets void and with all this whining he did i hope no NHL team even looks at him.

Without Vishnovsky's deal (if it gets voided) the Isles might have to do something crazy just to get to the floor. Even if it doesn't, they're supposedly at just over $50 million with 22 players signed via CapGeek, and no FA's you could really give big contracts to. Ottawa and Phoenix are also a little below the floor.

Me too! I thought I would wake up to at least seeing where the goodyear blimp was making a landing, but all I got was this Visnovsky crap, and some BS Don Cherry atricle!

I don't know if the Isles and Rangers would ever trade with each other though. Maybe they'll take on Gomez's contract (especially since it's much more of a cap hit than actual salary at this point) and get yet another reject ex-Devil in there

Haha didn't they try to send Gomez there, and he blocked the trade cause of his no trade clause?

I could picture that happening, I wonder if people will still stay away from the Isles in droves once they move to Brooklyn?

I wonder if that was before they signed Pandolfo is Gomez did indeed block it? They're really good friends, and I figured at least if Jay was there he would give it a shot!

They did almost send Palffy to the Rangers back in the day before Bettman intervened. The Kings then almost got Palffy for peanuts but the first trade got vetoed by the league too.

Looks like the Caps are bringing back Eric Fehr on a cheap one year deal. That might take them out of the running for Sykora (even though McPhee denied interest to begin with).

Fehr seems to have regained his form in the FEL. I was wondering if he might be worth a look on our wings but those shoulders are a worrisome issue.

I still have to believe there is a move to be made in moving an excess D-man. I still wonder if Chris Stewart could be had or would be worth pursuing.

Confirmed with Jay Pandolfo that he'll be here in Bruins camp starting tomorrow. Great chance for the Burlington High product #BruinsTalk

That's an interesting development. Poor Isles, everything they do makes them look bush league.

So are we going to have to wait till 11:59 for everything to be released and get started? The lawyers probably want to use every last billable hour they can (as if they haven't made enough money with this lockout)

Nothing in this situation is fault of Isles

Nothing the franchise has done negative in this entire ordeal

I hope he makes the team. Real shot at one more Cup before retiring.
