Fisher to Nashville

Ottawa really needs to clean house and Fisher is a natural fit for Nashville given his style of play and the fact his wife has got to prefer living in the country music capital vs the outskirts of Ottawa

To Ottawa
-Austin Watson and a 2nd rd pick in 2011
To Nashville
-Fisher and a 5th rd pick in 2011

This Sens fan says yes - this is the typical type of deal that a rebuilding team should do - older for younger and getting a better pick in the draft.

does nashville view Budish as a greater or lesser prospect?

I'd rather do Budish+1st over Watson+2nd.

Nashville won't give up their first.. I think Poile learned that lesson in 2006's Draft.

Watson and 2nd doesn't seem horrible though.

Just because his wife is a country singer doesnt mean we need him.. we are deep enough at center as and much better options for us out there for that price.. but at least its something new and exciting !

Poile says no, we have very few decent forward prospects and we don't want fisher.

His wife was the one that picked the place in the outskirts of Ottawa as the place she'd want to live, she also designed the house with the help of a designer, in fact she said she'd liken living in the outskirts of ottawa to cottage life, more relaxed and incognito, whereas shes front and center in Nashville, something Fisher wants nothing of.

fisher, like all sens this year, is having a down season.

that said he is a legit 45-55pt player who plays with his heart on his sleve. he isn t a free thinker on the ice but best when playing within the confines of a strict system(hello barry trotz). he is the prototypical predator kind of player and his contract isnt outside nashville comfort level(aka gomez/drury style)

ottawa is in transition from a contender to a pretender and will need a good 2-3 year rebuild based on youth and shedding salary. their biggest need is/are skilled forward prospects. watson isnt a star but he is a good responsible two-way prospect which fits every facet of what the sens need.

again this is a perfect trade for both clubs, someone email this thread to murray

Fisher's on pace for 22 goals and 38pts on a team that is on pace for 65pts with 181GF, and who's leading scorer is on pace for 48pts. This has been arguably one of his best offensive seasons considering the disarray the Senators are currently in. He was also playing injured for a good chunk of November where he had just 1G in 11GP. He has still scored 12% of Ottawa's goals this season.

Nashville fans seem to have some kind of unjustified hate-on for Fisher... probably because 90% of HF Sens fans want to trade Fisher there. However, make no mistake, the guy is a fantastic player and would do great in Nashville. Outside of the HF scoresheet watchers, no one in Ottawa wants to see the guy traded.. so we'll be happy to keep him.

Here's some yt of him for you to enjoy:


some good goals early and late in the video... middle's kinda boring.


example of the physicality he brings with a funny fluke goal.

i think we should trade fisher even though he is my favorite sen. he is definitely a great second line center and a great two player.

Funny, (Ms. Nashville Scene) tells me the other day, "I see Carry Underwood and her husband are buying a house in Nashville, think the Predators will get her husband?"...

I think the dislike comes from the fact he isn't a ufa at seasons end.


that and sens fans thinking he is worth a first round pick right now.
