      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

Agent: Semin Not Returning To Capitals

Recommended Posts

Agent: Semin not returning to Capitals:

The agent for Alex Semin said Monday that the 28-year-old right wing has no interest in returning to the Capitals and will test the free agent market on July 1.

Mark Gandler told ESPN The Magazine that Semin "is not ready to be a role player" and that he does not fit into the defensive system the team has chosen to play.

Gandler and Semin were seen talking in Madison Square Garden during the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

Semin has played his entire NHL career in Washington, recording 408 points in 469 games over six seasons. He also recorded 34 points in 51 career playoff games for the Capitals.

Earlier on Monday Alex Ovechkin said he would like to see Semin return for a seventh season in Washington. Semin was the Capitals' second-highest-paid player on the team at $6.7 million.

"Of course," Ovechkin said. "I want to see everybody back next year, but I hope he’s going to stay here. I don’t want him to leave. It’s George’s [McPhee] decision, it’s Sasha decision, it’s Sasha’s agent decision."

He was fourth on the team in +/-, only behind Ward, Alzner and Hamrlik. I don't think he's quite the defensive liability that every says he is. He is so incredibly talented and just needs the freedom to let loose. Similar to Ovechkin

Talented player, but probably thinks he deserves an 8-9 million dollar contract.

Talented but lacks work ethic. Didn't he get called out by his own teammate a while ago too?

Loser can go to the khl if this is true. Dont wanna help the team and play d? Get outta here - nobody will want you and your not a superstar.

The guys good and all offensively, but needs better work ethic. If this is his attitude, he will be a bigger mistake than Redden.

I actually agree with this statement, I have always despised guys with poor work ethic and lackluster D, I actually think that he has a higher chance of going to the KHL than staying here, unless he gets a really good offer from someone because he will not even be near his previous contract of $6.7M per season.

Semin to KHL makes the most sense. He sucks defensivley, can't get it done in playoffs and will want a boatload of money...wait a minute, sounds like the Islanders will make a run for him!

This is the equivalent of a girl realizing that a guy is about to dump her, so she quickly breaks up with him just so she can save face.
