Fisher staying in Nashville

Mike Fisher has no plans on going anywhere.

With the NHL locking out players while a new collective bargaining agreement is being worked on many players are fleeing to overseas' leagues to maintain their conditioning until a new agreement can be worked out between the league and the NHLPA.

Do not count Fisher among those players.

"I'm just going to continue training here in Nashville," said Fisher. "I just want to work hard and be ready for when the season starts."

During the last lockout Fisher spent time playing in Switzerland and while he enjoyed the experience he believes staying in Nashville is what's best for him personally.

Fisher is hopeful the two sides will be able to come to an agreement sooner rather than later for all involved.

"We just want what's fair, for both sides," said Fisher. "Something like this is never a good thing and as players we just want to play. There's a lot of people, those who work behind the scenes, who are being hurt."

A work stoppage was the last thing Fisher wanted to see as he was excited to get back to work.

"I was anxious to pick up where I left off last season," he said. "I think a lot of players were excited to get going, so this is disappointing. I had a great summer and feel strong and my body feels good."

Fisher will continue to work hard, work out with fellow players and do his best to be ready for the start of the season.
