It should also be pointed out that acquiring Fisher provides real marketing value to the Preds that doesn't exist anywhere else in the league. They didn't just acquire Mike Fisher, they acquired Mr. Carrie Underwood. I know it sounds funny to those of us who are "pure" hockey fans, but to a team in that market, it makes a difference in terms of fan interest, media coverage and overall relevance - and that adds up to additional revenue dollars for the team.
