Fisher, more prominently noted for being Carrie Underwood's husband, is set to make 4.2 million until the 2013 season. What a trade for Ottawa. They dump salary, and get a first round with the potential to get a second round pick as well. This is the beginning of the Senators massive "1 year rebuild" plan.
In other trade related news, The Pittsburgh Penguins have traded forward Casey Pierro-Zabotel to Nashville in exchange for forward Christiaan Minella and forward Sam D'Agostino.
Zabotel, was a complete bust for the Pens as he has not showed any promise. In addition, his wife continually tweets about how much she hates the organization and Zabotel's teammates. Have fun with that Nashville.
