Did Carrie Underwood Secretly Orchestrate an NHL Trade?

Country music stars are the most influential people on earth. But do they wield the kind of power necessary to force NHL player movement? After perusing the NHL trade wires today, it appears that the answer might be yes.

In a blockbuster (or at least mildly notable) deal, the Ottawa Senators have traded Mike Fisher to the Nashville Predators for a draft pick and no immediate help.

Sounds like a normal, pre-deadline deal. However, dig a little deeper and the trade seems like it’s clouded with American Idol alumni influence.

“The Predators have acquired forward Mike Fisher, who will be reunited in Nashville with his wife, country music star Carrie Underwood,” ESPN reports. “Underwood lives in Nashville, and the couple married last summer in Georgia.”

Did Underwood force the Predators to make this deal strictly so she could live closer to her husband? Since she hasn’t come out to explicitly deny it, we’re going to say “absolutely, she’s responsible.”
