I'm willing to throw 5m for 2 years to Semin, would be a good winger for sedin's I think.
Still would do what I could to get Doan though, then move contracts around and try to get Carle and good prospect defensemen.

I'm probably the only one that want's a flashy, pure goal-scorer on our team?

I like this guy for our second line. also if we sign him it proves Gillis was actually on the phone today.

Sedin Sedin Semin/Doan/Hudler
Higgins Kesler Booth
Burrows Lapierre Hansen
Raymond Malhotra Kassian

why is everyone's so quick to move burr from the sedins... he does score like 30 a year!?!? I think he earned his keep with the twins for the most part.

Gillian is the disturbing entity resulting from the amalgamation of Gillis and Gilman.

this. burrows is just the best winger for the sedins. just because he's able to do plenty others things on 2nd and 3rd line doesnt mean that he s not the best fit for the twins.Semin on the Kesler line. we just dont have any second line at all !

anything more than 4.5m is a no for me. We already have a soft reputation.. adding him isnt exactly gonna change that lol. Oh and the trolls would have a field day with this one. 2 sisters and Semin :sick:

I think Semin wouldn't be bad. He is what we lacked, a pure goal scorer that can snipe a shot comming down the wing and help the pp. I know he lacks the defensive awareness, but him playing with Kesler on the 2nd would make less of liability, since Kesler is great defensively

Here is just a sample of what Alexander Semin is capable of:









And a hat trick comprised solely of outstanding wristshots:



Here's another hat trick:



And another:



There are pros and cons to signing Alexander Semin, but there is no question he has tremendous skill.

Semin for the first line, Huselius for the second line, then Bjugstad and Versteeg for Luongo?

Booth - Kesler - Huselius
Burrows - Bjugstad - Versteeg
Higgins - Lapierre - Hansen

Edler - Carle

He called Boston Pizza inquiring about a large pepperoni. Thought what they were demanding was overpayment so he went and got buck-a-slice pizza downtown. I'm hearing that the can of pop he got with it is going to get a shot as Edler's partner next season.

This. Fans here don't think of the bigger picture. Yes Semin has uber talent but he would absolutely loathe AV and the feelings would be mutual.

Gillis wont do anything.....semin's contract would be too big for him to swallow...

Seriously, MG wont over pay anyone. Other teams will. Enjoy watching your other favorite teams in the playoffs this year. As a canuck fan for over 30 years ive always reverted to cheering for Detroit or Pittsburgh...you do what you have to do when your favorite team is the epitome of mediocre...

Stop it with the ridiculousness. Brule is a plug. How many times has this guy been waivered and or traded
Not to mention he's small and has shown no upside in the NHL

Rather haves are all fine and dandy, but it's not about who you'd rather have, at this point it's who you can get.

You mean when Semin beat up Stall with hammer punches? Damn rights. Most of the media made fun of Semin but who won the fight? That good tough Canadian kid Marc Stall was on the bottom get slapped around by a Ruskie.

Semin just gets a bad name because he's Russian. The fact is over his career Semin has a better +/- Than Parise and has similar regular season and playoff stats to Parise. I take a sniper like him on my team any day.

So by Eklund being the source it then means that we have no interest in Semin right?

He doesnt fit in the VAN system


The only thing worst than Eklund, are the lame jokes stating that because its from Eklund, the exact oppisite will happen. I bet you people think you're so clever too.

It stopped being funny after.........heck, it was never funny.

Yeah but there's a difference. Parise shows up. Semin is lazy, unmotivated, and as the panel on TSN says. "A coach killer".
No thanks.
