I take Fisher over Versteeg, but I think Philly got a better value. He's cheaper and only 24 years old, and their 1st rd pick could be 10-15 spots behind ours.
Wasn't it Brian Murray himself who said they had a better offer for Fisher on the table but sent him to Nashville because it was the right thing to do? We know LA was very interested. We know Washington was interested. Frankly I think OTT could have got more for Fisher if they had let a bidding war go on longer till the deadline. It seems he is highly respected around the league and really his contract isn't that bad.
