Update: 
Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal Constitution is reporting that the Thrashers have released Lisin from his professional tryout. Looks like his next move could be to the KHL.

The Rangers did not give Enver Lisin, who was a RFA, a qualifying offer this summer. As a result he is currently a UFA. There wasn't much news this whole summer about Lisin and it was expected by many that he'd likely head over to the KHL. But, Lisin may get another shot to make it in the NHL. According to Ben Wright, Thrashers "web guy" :
Thrashers have invited former Ranger Envers Lisin to training camp on a tryout basis. He skated this morning.  
Anyone that has seen Lisin play knows that the guy has ridiculous speed. Unfortunately, I think his legs move faster than his brain, or maybe even his hands. He gets himself into good scoring positions, but so far hasn't found a way to score on a consistent basis. He seemed like a good guy, so hopefully he gets a shot with Atlanta this season.
