Mike Fisher will make his return to the Predators' lineup Friday against the Vancouver Canucks. Fisher, who ended his retirement Jan. 31 in order to rejoin the team for its playoff push and another opportunity at the Stanley Cup, signed a prorated $1 million contract Monday. “I know it’s going to take a little bit of time to get my game going, but hopefully it won’t take me too long," Fisher said. "There will be nerves. If there’s not nerves, there’s probably something wrong.” The 37-year-old has the ideal qualities of a bottom-six center, a position he now can play with the enviable balance that the Predators possess at the middle of the ice. Ryan Johansen, Kyle Turris and Nick Bonino can slot ahead of Fisher, a projected depth chart that arguably would be the strongest in team history.
