After hearing rumors of Fisher wanting to retire, I just assumed he actually was when Poile acquired Bonino. This one could get ugly soon.

I think Fisher is done. But you never know he may come back for another shot at the cup.

From what I read it was sounding positive he would return. Preds sound like they're holding a spot for him, waiting for a decision.

If he retires this off season though, I'll send back what you sent me scorp. Never intended to pull a fast one on you.

Thanks Turd, I honestly had no idea. I'll send you back an extra 5th just for the trouble if it happens

This could get interesting. I don't think I have ever seen a retired player traded before.

He still winds up with Claesson. Terrific player. The deal should stand.

If scorp is interested I'll certainly Honor my statement and reverse the trade. I imagine Fisher retires a islander and we just sort the cap out after the fact.

Turd, I'm gonna stick with Claesson. A deal is a deal, and I still got a very promising defensive prospect out of Brassard. This also happened at a perfect time, right before batch 2.

Thanks for the deal, again. This whole offseason has been an exercise in patience and trying to make the best out of bad situations, and I've done my best at that so far. We'll see how that continues through Friday and beyond.
