Fisher injured 4-6 months

Welp.

http://predators.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=725598

Nashville, Tenn. – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile released the following statement today regarding forward Mike Fisher.

“Predators forward and alternate captain Mike Fisher sustained a ruptured Achilles tendon during a training session and underwent successful surgery on Thursday, July 3. We expect Mike to make a full recovery in four-to-six months, and look forward to his return to the ice.”

I don't buy the 4-6 months. Rupturing an achilles is damn near a year recovery for most.

Guess Philly just got some leverage on us.

This hurts.

Looks like Cooper may get a 2nd chance for his dream forward, Derek Roy, to come to Nashville.

In all seriousness, this opens the door for another forward to be brought in (in addition to the 2 top 6 forwards we still already need...) :/

Good thing we have a billion dollars in cap space.

Considering the statements he made last season, have to wonder if this will be it for him.

Was just thinking the same thing. I think he hangs it up.

Poile gets an early excuse as to why we miss the playoffs next year.

If Laviolette gets this roster to the playoffs in this division, he should be a Jack Adams lock.

Hope he gets well soon. That makes me more happy with the Olli Jokinen signing.

One month from now...

"I did not want to spend money just to spend money," David Poile stated earlier today. "I am expecting our younger players to step up their play this season."

OMG!

Our best two way center out for more than likely the year. At his age he may not be able to rehab back to 100%. I know he wasn't a trade possibility but know what?

Bring up another youngster, make the VLC trade, This really puts us behind the proverbial 8 ball!

Who are the FA left? What is our next step?

I think he will retire. He's already said this would have likely been his last year. We had a guy on our post-collegiate lacrosse league tear his Achilles a couple month ago; it's literally an athlete's worst nightmare, excluding freak cardiac / other potentially fatal issues.
