    Mike Fisher Grateful for Trade to Nashville

    Mike Fisher grateful for Eugene Melnyk, trade to Nashville

    By Josh Cooper1 hour agoPuck Daddy


    During the 2010-11 season there was one logical destination for former Senators center Mike Fisher.
    The veteran Ottawa forward was one of the team’s most tradeable assets during a rebuild year. He knew it. The Senators knew it. There were a group of suitors for Fisher, but only one place really made sense for him. Nashville and the Predators.
    And partially through the collective wits of owner Eugene Melnyk and general manager Bryan Murray did Fisher go there. With both battling health issues, and Melnyk having disclosed he needs a live liver donor, Fisher brought perspective to Ottawa’s decision to deal him to a team closer to his wife, country music star Carrie Underwood, and the importance of Melnyk in that choice.
    Via the Ottawa Sun
    “When Eugene took over, the first thing I noticed was just his passion for hockey and how he treated the guys,” Fisher said late Thursday night from Nashville. “Obviously, he wanted to win, but man, he treated me so well.
    “He talked to Bryan. He told him to trade me to Nashville, so I could be with Carrie. Not too many owners would have done that.
    “He could have traded me anywhere, but he cares about his guys. He does care about his players and his team. I’m forever grateful to him.”
