We probably didn't close the loop here last week on Lubomir Visnovsky, but safe to say his back/disc issue is one he's dealt with for years, so it's not a concern that he missed Slovakia's Olympic orientation camp. The real question for Islanders fans is whether he'll play in the Olympics rather than rest.

In a recent Slovakian interview, he leaves that question open, depending on how he's playing in the NHL when the Olympics roll around. Even via the mesmerizing Google Translate version, you can see Visnovsky has high hopes for the Islanders, has enjoyed the family-friendly environment of Long Island (but still likes California), and still thinks of Slovan Bratislava.
