The re-signing of pending free agent Mike Fisher is a top priority of GM David Poile.
"Mike Fisher, we would love to have him back," Poile said. "He represents so much to our team, both on and off the ice. ... He's a real leader. I truly feel that the best place for Mike is here in Nashville. As long as I'm the manager, he can play as long as he wants." The interest is mutual as Fisher would love to be back with the Predators. He has been Nashville's highest-scoring forward, with 172 points, since joining the team via a trade from Ottawa in February of 2011. May 7 - 3:17 PM

"We don't speculate on in or out," Fisher said after the morning skate. "I don't want to talk about lineups. Obviously, I'm hoping to get back sometime soon. We're in a position where we just need to win tonight. These guys have responded well all year, so we're looking just (to) play as hard as we can." He sat out the two games of the regular season with a lower-body injury and then left Game 1 early.
