It isn't a premiere line by any means, but, it has the potential to create a some havoc similar to what the Tootoo/Spaling/Bourque-Wilson line has done since late Nov.
Speaking of McCrappan, he's still on pace to play over 50 games this season. It's impressive that the Preds are currently in a playoff spot playing one forward down so many games this season.

I saw the same thing with Fisher last night and wondered where he was hurt. He hasn't looked well in a while.

I wonder if when Smithson is "back" from whatever, do you put smith in Fishers place and leave mcgrattan and smithson on the 4th line.

I sure hope so.. injuries or whatever it is, fisher has sucked pretty bad 75% of the season.

Maybe we should have gone for Chris Kelly? He went for a lower draft pick and has nearly twice the goals of Fisher. Who saw that one last year when many around the league had no interest in Kelly.

hindsight is 20/20...

I mean, we could always go back and re-do the 2003 draft.

not saying we should have gotten Kelly. Just found it amusing how it worked out to this point. It was unanimous around the league that Fisher was worth it and Kelly was practically done. Guess the B's didn't overpay after all.

It also helps that he is playing on the Bruins. Seems like everyone there is having a great year. Probably wouldn't have had near the success stat wise here. But he's still a very solid player.
