[Extension] Preds extend Mike Fisher, 2 yr - $8.4 million

A nice bit of news comes today at the Town Hall as the Nashville Predators have locked up center Mike Fisher for 2 more years. The guy has fit like a glove with this team since coming over from Ottawa in a February 2011 trade, and serves well both as an on- and off-ice leader for the Preds.

Maybe I'm reading too much into it, but I feel like this recent glut of extensions / contract negotiations might be a good sign re: potential lockout.

Seemed like, leading up to the CBA negotiations, everything contract related ground to a halt. The fact that activity has picked up again in the past few days suggests that there might have been some sort of breakthrough behind the scenes. Or at the very least the owners have come to an informal agreement to avoid a lockout.

Wishful thinking at least...

Hardly. Hartnell got $4.75 for 6 years and with Fisher getting $4.2M for the next two, that keeps him well under the $5M range. Burrows is motivated to stay here since he fits so well with the Sedins and he knows they inflate his value, where someone like Fisher can be the main guy on a line to help it produce. He'll take much closer to $4M range, maybe even less but not much if he does.
