It could be that NYI traded 2rd pick for nothing… Visnovsky’s statement for Slovak press: “I’ll be honest, hockey is not the first priority for me anymore. I look at life differently. Death of Palo Demitra changed me, I appreciate time with family, kids more. It can be felt on the ice. I cannot say that I play bad but I’m not as much effective anymore. I have to find a spark. I have a contract for another year. I will see whether I’ll have a will to continue playing or whether not. I will decide during the summer.”
