The Skinny: With the Predators decimated at the center position by injury, David Poile decided to trade for Mike Fisher on February 10th for a first-round draft pick this summer and, because of Nashville's win over Anaheim, but loss to Vancouver, a third-round pick in 2012. Poile and everyone else in the Predators organization will tell you that this was strictly a hockey move, but it certainly did not hurt that Fisher was engaged married to she-who-must-not-be-named, and was looking to settle down in the Music City.

The Production: Fisher started strong, with 3 points in his first 4 games, but practically fell off the map during the month of February with just 1 goal and 1 assist. In the playoff series against Anaheim, however, Fisher stepped his game up a notch. In Game 1, Fisher scored 2 goals and 1 assist, finishing the series with 6 points and leading the Predators to their first series win in franchise history. Against Vancouver, however, Fisher only notched 1 assist during the entire series.

The Grade: Even though he wouldn't appear on the scoresheet for a stretch of games (due in part to injury?), Fisher was a key part of the playoff push and the historic post season for the Predators. For that, I'll give him a B for this season.
