Mike Fisher is probably limited to the 3rd line role . And since the top 8 teams picking in the 2009 draft are more rebuild oriented , I HIGHLY DOUBT THEY WOULD WANT to trade down to pick up a 3rd line "shut-down" type centre .
So there's 2 lines difference between Pocahonsky and Fisher?

Horcoff, Gagner, Cogliano, O'Sullivan, and Brodziak all play centre
He isn't and we'd never, never, never take Horcoff's contract in return for him.

Last 4 seasons , Alexei Ponikarovsky is on pace for :

23 goals , and about 50 points . Last season he scored 23 goals , and 61 points .
That's pretty cool. Playing on the one team in the NHL bad enough to play him as a 1st liner for 1 season increased his per season point total by 10 points over 5 year? Wow. Still missed the playoffs though right? Maybe the next team will realize that many minutes going to pocahonsky is a problem.

Probably. But Bryan Murray has stated he will not approach Fisher about a trade, and Fisher has gone on the record as well.
They already have Dustin Brown.

Yuck, I'd be extremely pissed if we were paying Horcoff $5.5M a season to be carried by his wingers.
