Islanders trade for Visnovsky.

The New York Islanders have acquired defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky from the Anaheim Ducks for a second round pick in 2013.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: This move addresses two issues, a need for experienced depth at defense, and eats up cap space thus helping the Isles reach the cap floor, as Visnovsky’s cap hit is $5.6 million, but his actual salary is $3 million. Good, short-term pick up for the Islanders.
