The Mike Fischer Trade
While I am a fan of Mike Fischer, Ottawa made a great trade by acquiring a 1st and a 3rd for the remainder of his last season. Nashville needs a guy like that, and Ottawa needs the picks. How fast would Brian Burke trade Kaberle for a 1st and a 3rd? Lightning fast (one of Burke's greatest mistakes was overvaluing the value of Kaberle). The Senators need to rebuild as the Alfredsson-Spezza era nears its end. One has to wonder if Nashville overpaid for the husband of country singing star Carrie Underwood. That franchise is bleeding money and needs any gimmick to put asses in seats. Nashville, the heart of country music overpays for the husband of a country music star? Gotta like it if you are a downtrodden Senators fan.
