Visnovsky told Sport.sk he might file for arbitration after trade to NYI, who weren't on his 10-team list. Could become #Ducks player again.

Lubomir Visnovsky, who filed a grievance to stop his trade from the Ducks to the Islanders, will get his day in his NHL arbitration court on Sept. 4, Slap Shots has learned.

The 36-year-old defenseman, dealt on June 23 for a 2013 second-round draft pick, did not consent to waive his no-trade clause he and the NHLPA contend should still be in force, even after he agreed to a previous trade from the Oilers to the Ducks in 2009-10.

Visnovsky is due $3 million for the final season of a five-year deal that carries a cap hit of $5.6 million, thus making him the quintessential Islander of the Charles Wang/Garth Snow Floor Regime.
