Interesting move by Poile/management. Easy way to increase center depth without giving up anything. Plus this will probably push those guys to try and get him a ring this go around...

Certainly can't make Bonino happy that he is now going to fight for the 3C position after coming in with the thought of being the #2 guy.

Yeah, I think there will be a decent amount of shifting that will need to happen to accommodate him. When Forsberg come back, Hartnell gets traded/waived?

Fisher with a brilliant move to wait until 50 games or so into the season and not have to go through everything and the grind before now. It's obvious the Preds are going to the playoffs and he'll be in game-shape and form by then. He's rested, his wife is on the IR for a while, he doesn't need money, Nashville has always loved him......all that's left is to get a Cup victory.

Fisher was a guy I really would have liked to have been a Penguin but just no room when Sid-Malkin-Staal were down the middle.

Fortunately for Nashville, even if they get rid of Hartnell, they still have plenty of guys willing to take stupid, undisciplined penalties.

Fisher's lovely wife looked very much in game shape last night when she sang at the Superbowl.

Sure, but that was taped before the car wreck. Hope she has a good recovery because it was apparently pretty serious.

In Touch = Fake News. Leave it to Yahoo to put anything on their site these days because at least half is beyond even supermarket tabloid BS.
