Bill Daly, the N.H.L. deputy commissioner, said in an e-mail message Monday, "We had further contact with the K.H.L. today, and they continue to assert that Visnovsky will be ineligible to play in K.H.L. games without the Islanders’ consent." Ilya Kochevrin, the K.H.L.’s head spokesman, said in an e-mail message Monday that the matter "will be decided tomorrow." The Islanders confirmed Monday that they had neither suspended Visnovsky nor given consent for him to remain with Slovan. Visnovsky told a Slovakian newspaper, Pravda, on Monday that he wanted to stay with Slovan because of "family issues," but he conceded that the Islanders had a right to be upset with him.
