Visnovsky's agent has refuted a report that his client will sign to play in Europe next season, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.Perhaps Visnovsky has had a change of heart about leaving the best league in the world or perhaps this is just a negotiating ploy. Either way it would still seem unlikely that the Isles would be interested in his services as they have quite a few young players in their pipeline that deserve the playing time and don't have anywhere near the injury history of Visnovsky.

Visnovsky is close to signing a deal to play in Austria, according to Islanders Point Blank.Visnovsky is a free agent who has suffered several concussions over the past couple of seasons and was probably not going to be re-signed by the Islanders. The Isles will miss his offensive skills, especially his ability to quarterback the power play, but in the end this may be addition by subtraction.

Visnovsky (concussion) is unsure about playing next season, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.Visnovsky had an up and down season with the Islanders. He was injured several times and was also a healthy scratch a more than once.
