Mike Fisher goes in for surgery - how's your Monday?

It apparently wasn't so easy for Mike Fisher to put his hands up, as he undergoes shoulder surgery today.

Nashville Predators forward Mike Fisher probably got his Monday off to a worse start than most of us:

On my way to surgery and this no food thing is bush!! Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers!! Keep ya posted   - @mikefisher1212 on Twitter. 

Ever since joining the Predators in February, Fisher's meager offensive production (12 points in 27 regular season games, 7 in 12 playoff games) has been excused by explanations that he was laboring through an unspecified injury. Now that the season is over, some of that secrecy can be lifted and we start to hear about issues that have dogged players, often for weeks or even months at a time. One reporter in Ottawa tweeted last week that Fisher was specifically going in for shoulder surgery.

For many players, the off-season is all about rehabilitating from injuries such as this, and focusing on comprehensive hockey training so that they arrive at camp in September prepared to compete. Think back to how Joel Ward came out of nowhere to earn a roster spot with the Predators in the fall of 2008, and you can start to wonder which prospects are going to work hard this summer so they can shake up the organization's depth chart, too.
