Mike Fisher Injury / Lecavalier to Nashville

With Nashville losing Mike Fisher to a ruptured achilles tendon, does this now push their hand to target Vinny more aggressively? Perhaps the Flyers regain some leverage as far as salary they'd have to retain?

From the article "Even with the Mike Fisher news, the Preds are better off without Lecavalier" (lol) from On the Forecheck:

"It seems like a good fit, given that he hasn't gelled in Philadelphia and Peter Laviolette was a big reason he signed there in the first place. Nashville also needs a serviceable center (now more than ever) to really maximize the threat of James Neal's shot and, you know, round out the line up. Reports are saying that Philly will to have to retain half of the salary remaining on the $22.5 million contact he signed last year. He has four years left on that deal, though, so is it worth making a play to get the aging center?"

What do you think? Is Vinny to Nashville now a more realistic possibility?
