Nashville isn’t a hockey town, which is demonstrated in the video above when Nashville Predators winger Matt Halischuk runs over a camera man. The camera was standing in front of a smoke machine during player introductions. Tough loss for both him and Hailschuk, his Predators lost to the Vancouver Canucks 2-1.
Ottawa’s most popular radio station is now banning Carrie Underwood, vowing never to play her songs again. Underwood is being blamed for the trade, Fisher has spent his entire career with the Senators and now moves to Nashville to be closer to his wife.
“We know Mike Fisher is not to blame for this trade but feel he was lured away from Ottawa by a country-music superstar. Sure, she’s pretty. Yes, she can sing. But can she play hockey? Can she put one on the top shelf with a slap shot? No!… This is a wretching announcement and the city is completely upset. He’s been here for 10 years, he’s the second most popular player and it’s awful.”
As the NHL trading deadline draws near, Carrie Underwood’s husband Mike Fisher has been traded to the Nashville Predators. Drafted by the Ottawa Senators, Fisher spent his entire NHL career in the Canadian capital. The Yoko Ono move comes as a surprise to players and Senators.
“You’re surprised right away, and sad…Unfortunately, this year we haven’t been able to play the way we’re capable of and we all know the reality that comes with it,” captain Daniel Alfredsson said.
While the Senators are in second to last place in their conference, the move comes as a convenience to Fisher. Since marrying in July, Fisher has been living apart from Underwood who is based in Nashville.
