Report: Islanders Arrange Ticket, but Lubomir Visnovsky Not on the Plane

Did we say the Lubomir Visnovsky situation is a saga? It's a saga.

Saturday morning Newsday's Islanders beat reporter Arthur Staple tweeted that the Isles had made arrangements to get Visnovsky to Long Island in time for camp and physicals Sunday.

Two and a half hours later, this:


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

Not clear whether the Isles had assurances he would take the flight and he reneged, or if this is just another escalating step in building a grievance for a player that hasn't/won't report.
