Mike Fisher and Brooks Laich trade places.

Phoenix, Arizona

With his name mentioned in weekly rumors, Mike Fisher finally got the call he was not looking forward to having. Fisher found out that he was the one moving on while his line mates Cammalleri and Bourque stayed put.

"I was a little surprised, when the phone rang but again it's a business and with our line struggling to put up consistent points well someone was going to pay the price. I must say that playing in Phoenix was great. They have a great bunch of talent and they should do fine. I look forward to going to New York and start fresh" Fisher stated.

Coming from New York is Brooks Laich who had a brief stay in Phoenix in the off season will be counted on to provide a spark for Mike & Rene.

Coach Richards plans on making Laich the man to play big minutes when Malkin and Ovechkin are not on the ice. The team truly needs to get its secondary scoring going since teams will attempt to shutdown their star players if they cannot spread the scoring.

The club is mighty happy with Ovechkin's play as he currently leads the league in scoring with 12 points in 6 games. "That is what we expected when we acquired the star player and he is showing that even with a new signed contract he still plays like he loves hockey." Larouche stated.

The clubs gm did mention that some other moves could be coming in the next few weeks. It's no secret the club as been looking to add another top defenseman to help out Kronwall. However seems the market is very still when it comes to that type of deal. Larouche did state he would like to move two young defensemen or some draft picks or a combination with maybe young prospect Calvin De Haan or Chet Pickard.

Time will tell what happens next.
