The player movement has started, as centre Mike Fisher has been traded to Nashville for a 2011 1st rd pick and a 2012 conditional pick.
Fisher was a 2nd round pick of the Senators in 1998 and was a fan favorite in Ottawa, but he was never able to live up to the standards of his large contract.
The conditional pick, as per Bob McKenzie of TSN, is a 2012 3rd rd pick if the Predators win one playoff round, and a 2nd rd pick if the Predators win 2 or more rounds.
This is the first of what is expected to be many moves as the Senators rebuild for the future in the midst of a disastrous season.
More to come later….
