|Meet Nashville's biggest hockey fan|
This whole trade has created some pretty funny drama and headlines. From Carrie Underwood's Husband Traded to Nashville appearing in Tennessee headlines, to Ottawa radio stations "banning" her songs from their airwaves due the community betrayal she caused. Fisher cleared that one up by saying that station doesn't play her music anyways, and that he wanted the trade, he even prayed for it. Hockey will no doubt be treated to more exposure on celebrity gossip sites that think he played for the Vancouver Canucks, but also Carrie Underwood making the Predators look good.
Underwood isn't the first celebrity to be considered hockey's Yoko Ono. Remember Janet Jones getting blamed for the Wayne Gretzky trade? Outraged fans called her "Jezebel Janet" for luring Gretzky to Hollywood. Janet stood her ground though, and battled Oilers owner Peter Pocklington in the press after he said the trade was Gretzky's idea.
From the Edmonton Sun:
"The story of the trade as presented by Peter Pocklington is false. Pocklington is the reason Wayne's gone. To see Wayne hurt like this hurts me. That's why I'm making the call to you. But everything is getting out of hand. I know the real story. I know the whole story. I know Wayne didn't deserve any of this. He wouldn't let Edmonton fans, Canada and, most important, his teammates down without good reason."With the $15 million cash Pocklington received in the deal, it's hard to believe Janet Jones was the real motivation behind the biggest trade in NHL history. Obviously it was a benefit for the Gretzky's relationship, just as the trade to Nashville is one for the Fisher's. Don't look now, but Hilary Duff wants her husband, Mike Comrie to get traded to San Jose (jokingly, but probably seriously).
P.S. Can Carrie Underwood do a hockey photoshoot like Janet Jones?
