Why not? My sense is the exact opposite: I can't understand why Višňovský wouldn't play against Traktor tomorrow. And Sekera, too. It's like Datsyuk said: the CBA isn't even signed on paper, so why shouldn't they continue playing in the KHL in the meantime? Even if it were signed, nothing is happening overseas these days. No training camp yet, let alone games. Boston Bruins went way overboard when they forbade Chára to play for Lev yesterday.

He already said that he would play tomorrow. Plus, I just saw it confirmed on TV.

Confirmed in what way? Višňovský saying that with his own mouth? These days, following the Malkin reports fiasco from Sunday, I'm doubly suspicious of any hockey-related news the media serve to us.

I know, but still, TV is a bit more trustworthy than internet. It was sports news on Markíza, btw.

I have zero trust in TV news, and especially a channel like Markíza -- the TV equivalent of a tabloid newspaper. Their newscasts are a travesty. So, this is no "confirmation" for me. Of course, I hope Višňovský (and Sekera) will play tomorrow against Traktor, despite Sunday's farewell party.

Interesting...you guys are more clearly more tuned into the news out there than me (it's not that easy to get those kind of updates speaking only english and french and not knowing the news sources ), so will always differ to you guys, but I thought most NHLers would be sitting out/heading back at this point, it's basically a done deal...but I very might be completely wrong

JOJ is definitely worse in this regard.

I know Pluska is a tabloid too, but I doubt they would make up a whole sentence he never said. And in that interview, he said "On Tuesday, I will play against Chelyabinsk", that's a pretty clear answer, no way it was taken out of context or anything.

Well, if a giant like Datsyuk begs to disagree... why could Višňovský (and Sekera) not do the same.

See, that's where we differ. Tabloid "journalists" are completely capable of inventing entire sentences and putting them in the interviewees' mouths, just to get the audience's attention. There was this guy on Sunday who invented the Malkin quote about boarding the airplane, which enraged Malkin on Twitter.

That's because when it comes to things like this one Datsyuk is not very bright (see: his ability to talk English after 10 or so years in US)

Erm... there's no direct correlation between the ability to learn foreign languages and general IQ. Learning languages is a specialized skill, in a sense similar to being a good hockey player. If you can't do it, that doesn't mean you're dumb. I always laugh a lot when reading or watching Datsyuk interviews, including those conducted in Russian -- and not because Datsyuk's answers are silly. They are frequently funny in a clever way. I do admit Datsyuk lacks the co(s)mic, intellectual depth of Bryzgalov.

Islanders twitter seems to have confirmed that Visnovsky will finish the year with Slovan...certainly fantastic news for Slovan fans!

Darn... looks like the "tabloid" newspaper may have gotten it right, for once, instead of the "respectable" newspaper!

This couldn't have been premeditated by Višňovský. Why skate around the ice-rink for 5 minutes after the game last night, throwing your jersey and pieces of equipment to the crowd, if you know you're not leaving? Something must have broken in him since last night, that made up his mind that he would stay. Perhaps it was the 5-minute standing ovation by the sell-out crowd.

Although he has to honour his contract, I would hate to have a player on my team who does not want to play for them and is basically forced to.

Although I don't like him, I understand him, living in your home country, with your own language and culture and in a beautiful city is tempting

On the other hand, that's understandable. As it stands now, they wasted ~35 draft pick on absolutely nothing while you can get a player like Jaskin, Rask, Collberg, Oullet and etc.

Yeah, it's still funny to me, though, seeing NHL get spurned for the KHL. I'll probably never see it happen, but although NHL is the league I follow closest, I yearn for the day when another league, say, KHL will be on equal footing, like you see in football.

Where did you hear Islanders' twitter confirmed the news? I can't find anything of that nature at the moment, and it seems it was one of their beat reporters who floated the "confirmation". I wouldn't put too much stock in that.

The only players who will play on are Kovalchuk & S. Kostitsyn (maybe their last games today), the all others gone or already left their teams.
