Is this Mike Fisher and Carrie Underwood walking to LA from Ottawa?

Does a trade for Fisher even make sense for the Kings?

Personally, I don’t see the fit. Fisher is a Center.

The Kings have been searching for a #1 left wing and a top four Defenseman. Adding Fisher would definitely provide depth up the middle. Behind Kopitar, the Kings have Stoll and Handzus followed by a rotating collection of 4th line guys. Adding Fisher pushes Stoll to #4 and keeps Handzus as the shutdown #3 Center.

All looks good on paper, until you give up Simmonds.
Then you’re out a top Left Wing, and a solid 3rd line Right Wing.
