Country Bitch gets her trade
What was it I wrote the last time I posted about Carrie Underwood? The article is here. And specifically:
Given the season he and the Senators have been having, Mike, um, is not invited (to the All-Star Game). Ottawa is so sh-t this year, there’s actually talk that the team is in such trouble, they’re looking to shake it up. And while she may pretend she’s down with Canada, Country Bitch probably isn’t trying to convince him to stay.
Mike has a partial no-trade clause. He can submit a list of 10 teams he will not play for. Needless to say, Mrs Fisher only has one she’s pushing for. And Nashville can totally afford Mike Fisher. It’s just that they never spend to their cap. Besides, at $4.2 million a year, is he worth it?
Someone said recently that Fisher’s really a 3rd line centre on any other team, the poor man’s Ryan Kesler if you will. In fairness to him though, he’s played on a really, really terrible team for a long time. There’s some skill and a lot of grit there. He just hasn’t been able to use it in a thriving environment. With Nashville currently 4th in the conference, hoping for some playoff success, it might not be a bad acquisition.
If you’re a Sens fan then, I wonder if you need to be worrying about this. Because before bedtime, don’t you think Carrie’s whispering these things to him every single night? Baby, I wish you could play for Nashville. Baby, Nashville would take care of you. Baby, we’d be so happy in Nashville. Baby we can raise our kids in Nashville…
And suddenly Mike Fisher plays for Nashville…?
Mike Fisher has been traded to Nashville. The LA Kings were also apparently interested in signing him. Both cities would have worked for his wife. Nashville is currently in 5th spot (as of press time) in the Western Conference. But they’re only 2 points out of 8th spot, and 4 points out of 9th, which means they wouldn’t make the playoffs. That’s a tight swing. They need all the help they can get. But that price tag…
Suffice to say, he needs to produce.
Or not. I have no idea the expectations of hockey fans in Nashville. In Toronto, if a guy like Mike Fisher comes to town and doesn’t score, suddenly we start calling him Mr Underwood, what are you good for?
Who’s the biggest winner here?
Always. Who else?
Country Bitch got her way.
She doesn’t have to come to Canada anymore.
