Fisher has signed a five-year, $21 million extension with the Ottawa Senators.
Pretty good contract in my view.
It's funny how it's so close to this one given during the summer:
Toronto Maple Leafs sign forward Jason Blake (2006-07: New York Islanders) to a five-year, $20 million contract.
Who'd you rather have?
Also, Erin bagged the number pretty well in her column:
Keep in mind that the Senators already have their backs creeping against the wall before the season has begun, with similar players such as Scott Hartnell landing a six-year, $25.2-million (all terms US) contract with Philadelphia. It's a safe bet to assume that many GMs would willingly cough up a Hartnell-type salary --an average of $4.2 million per season -- for one of Ottawa's greatest assets. In fact, several would probably consider that number as a starting point.
