from Erin Nicks at the Ottawa Sun,
While the Senators would undoubtedly be overjoyed if No. 12 experiences a healthy and fully productive season in 2007-08, they surely must realize that if Fisher comes away with a newfound goal scoring vigour, he could easily price himself out of the franchise’s range by next summer. 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.
