Bill Daly on Lubomir Visnovsky: We had an agreement!

"This is what happens, Lubo. This is what happens when you find a stranger in the Alps."

Something to that effect, except without Walter's trademark "enthusiasm," is how NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly responded to reporters when asked about the Lubomir Visnovsky situation.

Visnovsky has let it be known through his agent Neil Sheehy he intends to ride this season out with Slovan Bratislava, the Slovakian KHL club where he's been spending the NHL lockout.

Daly told Newsday's Arthur Staple that the NHL and KHL have an agreement that would prevent contracted NHL players from continuing in the KHL. This saga, per its nature, isn't over yet.
