Good acquisition down the stretch, questionable playoff acquisition (for the price). Questionable playoff performance ability for a 1st + extra.

Glad Kenny didn't trade good assets for his contract just to add to our strongest position.
If some bored artist wants to make me a signature, feel free to cut loose and do so.

Of course, I could get off my lame rear and do something.

Good trade for Murray. Getting two solid draft picks for Fisher.

So wait, not only did the wings not get him (which sucks cause he was high on my wish list) but he is going to a division rivsl as well? Well atleast ill get to see him play more often...


You wanted to pay $4m per year for a 20-goal scorer who has two years left on his contract? Really???

Good pickup for Nashville. Fisher's a gritty guy that has some playoff experience, which can only help the Predators.

The only thing the local media are saying is that it's a "dream come true" for Carrie now that her husband will be living here with her.

Gag.

As long as we get Gary Allan then I'm a happy camper.


I think all Kenny may give us on deadline day are smoke rings in the dark.
Jordan Tootoo will wreck shop.

We need someone like Parise that can penetrate the box.-blueadams

No surprise there. My first thought upon seeing this trade was "Heh... figures."

Not so sure Fisher will fix the Preds 1st round hex, I think the Sens got screwed in this deal...even if they are in rebuild mode.

Deja vu...same thing Wayne Gretzky did going from Oilers to Kings because of his wife and her career.

Wait... How can Fischer not be worth a first, but the Sens get screwed? So Nashville overpays but the Sens don't win this trade?

Isn't it Fisher? Or did the Preds go and sign our very own scouting and development guy, Jiri Fischer? Posted Image

The 1st round pick is a deep 1st round pick, if my memory is correct. The 2012 pick is predicated on how deep they go into the playoffs, and we all know that the Preds have been bounced out of the 1st round by the Red Wings, Blackhawks and the Sharks. 2004 -- lost to Detroit, 4-2, Western Conf. quarterfinals...2006 -- lost to San Jose, 4-1, Western Conf. quarterfinals...2007 -- lost to San Jose, 4-1, Western Conf. quarterfinals...2008 -- lost to Detroit, 4-2, Western Conf. quarterfinals...2010 -- lost to Blackhawks, 4-2, Western Conf. quarterfinals = 8-20 playoff record.

not that I agree the $4m is good, I don't, but what are we paying Hudler? $2.9m? for what? We have our share of overpaid players...

The only media story that might be bigger would be Chelios attending your world-renowned catfish festival. Someone would need to change his Depends at Murray before wheeling him across the border.

You know, it's funny. We get all tsktsky about them referring to Fisher as "Carrie Underwood's husband" when we referred to actress/singer/tv personality Emma Andersson as "Z's girlfriend".

It's all in how you look at it. We care about hockey. Nashville cares about music. If he had been a long-time Pred, or didn't have any ties to Nashville, he'd just be Mike Fisher, and he wouldn't make headlines.

I'm guessing that he'd have been negotiating with Nashville as soon as he became a free agent anyway, so Ottawa might as well get something for him.

Don't hate on the World's Biggest Fish Fry!:D

I'm sorry but I don't care about Mike Fisher or his bride. I find it hilarious that all the media is focusing on the marriage aspect of the trade and not ONE announcer has focused solely on the trade alone. Poor guy will forever be known as Carrie Underwood's husband.

That's all Nashville knows...country music. They're not like the original 6 teams where hockey has been around in their town 80+ years...
