Please Don't Push Lubomir Visnovsky's Emotions

The Lubomir Visnovsky saga just keeps getting better. The latest comments, to Slovakian site Sportky.sk, relay that he wasn't happy after a phone call from Garth Snow and Doug Weight before a game with Slovan, the Slovakian KHL team where he's played during the lockout.

Visnovsky, according to a translation by the New York Times:

"Both went after me emotionally — it was hard for me ... I said that now I have a game to focus on, so I had to forget about it and play."

The Times also says he is tired of being "pushed" by the Islanders and the NHL. The 36-year-old defenseman is in the fifth year of a five year contract that pays him $28 million, minus escrow and outbreaks of lockout.

These are probably the words of a player who has really enjoyed playing in front of hometown fans and realizes that will not be possible for much longer, if the KHL enforces an agreement claimed by the NHL.

If you've followed any of Visnovsky's history of fun interviews while in the NHL, you know such heartfelt and somewhat quirky talk is par for the course. However this ends, there will be more fun quotes to come.
