Mike Fisher: On The Roster Part 2

In part 2 of On The Roster Predlines will take a look at Nashville Predators center #12 Mike Fisher. Fisher was acquired from Ottawa for a 2011 First Round pick and a conditional 2012 draft pick on February 12, 2011. In just under 2 1/2 seasons as a Predator Fisher has only managed 39 goals in 137  games. In Fisher’s NHL career he has never played more than 79 games in any regular season, and for his career his yearly GP average is around 58 games. During that time he has only scored more than  20 goals 5 times.

No one can knock his career, but  I think it is fair to say Fisher has fallen short of his expectations. Nashville gave up a 1st round pick to get Fisher, and he simply has not played like a first round pick. If Fisher wants to change my mind and the minds of some fans he will need to become a leader in the locker room and on the ice.

You know, Canadian cities, they’re obviously special to play in — everybody lives and dies hockey — but I think one of the first things when I came down here that I was surprised with is the fans and how into it they are.
