Sens-ible Add to ...

It just makes too much sense.

If you're married to a country music star, you should be living in Music City. And Mike Fisher, aka Mr. Carrie Underwood, will be after Thursday's trade from Ottawa to Nashville.

The Senators get a 2011 first-round draft pick and a conditional pick in the 2012 draft (conditional on Nashville's playoff success). The Predators, flush with a deep farm system, get the top-six forward they were craving.

Fisher is under contract for two more years, and carries a $4.2 million U.S. cap hit. All in all, a very sensible deal for both sides.
