Really Fisher in theory should have been a great winger.

I'm not sure why it never worked out.
We went through a lot coaches while Fisher was here, all of them seemed to want to keep the Selke nominee with above average face-off ability who was producing just fine at center. Vermette was his only real competition for most of that time. Even amongst Ottawa's history of 2nd line C's, I'm not sure that any of them could have won the job outright over Fisher. We've just never had an extra 1st line center laying around to play above him.
