The Nashville Predators make an unexpected move on Wednesday when they made the surprising announcement that veteran centre Mike Fisher was coming out of retirement for the stretch drive. 

The Predators are surely taking all measures to once again reach the Stanley Cup finals, while hoping for a different result after losing in six games against the Pittsburgh Penguins last summer. 

When the announcement was made about Fisher, some people believed that was the big move from the Preds and that general manager David Poile was not going to go on the trade market to complete any other changes prior to the deadline. 

However, not so fast... TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun has reported the Predators might not be done there. LeBrun revealed on Thursday the Predators could still enter the trade market to further boost their lineup.

"If all goes well with his comeback, Fisher is a bottom-six centre," LeBrun said. "I think if the Predators get their way, they'll add a top-six winger who can score. They may not - the urgency is perhaps not there with Fisher back, but I still think that's a goal of the Predators if the price is right."

The Predators had been said to be interested in top forwards on the market, including Montreal Canadiens' Max Pacioretty, Ottawa Senators' Mike Hoffman and Buffalo Sabres' Evander Kane

Poile, who loves the thrill of a blockbuster trade, might not be done shocking fans across the NHL...
