Im curious as to what terms people would take Alex Semin on. His skill and shot is undeniable, but ya he lack heart and has attitude problems. Its possible though that Vancouver's enviroment could really do alot for his attitude problems as he would be playing underneath the Sedins (very respectful humble people) and playing alongside the likes of Burrows and Booth. Both of whom also have great attitudes and character players. I think a big part of Semin's issue in Washington was that he was playing along with Ovechkin who is a cancer himself. Apart from Ovie, Semin's attitude could change.
Under what type of contract would you take him at???

2 Years at 4.5 Million for me

Pass. Unless he plays on coming here for far less than he wants.

I mean, he's soft, lazy, plays like a star when he wants. He's a complete adventure in his own zone. I understand players have bad games, etc, but he is the above far too often.

I read that teams aren't offering him what he wants...could go back to the KHL. Good riddance.

Anything over 4.5 would be not worth it imo. We need players who play with passion to win the cup, and Semin definitely doesn't fit that bill, even IF he can put up 60+ pts. He'll just disappear when we need him most and it'll be a waste.

the cost to benefit would be way to much. Bad idea for any price... even free as it will still kill the locker room.

“Since the beginning of recorded history, which is defined by the invention of writing by the Sumerians around 6,000 years ago, historians have cataloged over 3700 supernatural beings, of which 2870 can be considered deities.

So next time someone tells me they believe in God, I’ll say “Oh which one? Zeus? Hades? Jupiter? Mars? Odin? Thor? Krishna? Vishnu? Ra?…” If they say “Just God. I only believe in the one God,”

I’ll point out that they are nearly as atheistic as me.I don’t believe in 2,870 gods, and they don’t believe in 2,869.”

come on guys. He is way better than Booth or Burrows.

Imagine Semin on the top line with Hank and Danny.

Or even put him with Kes on the second.

He will explode offensively.

i see him signing a contract somewhat like 3 years at 6mill per. maybe 5.8mill because he dipped in production. if teams lowball him im sure he would bolt for the KHL because he can defs get a lot more money there

Meh tsn panel said guy is locker room poison.




I'll follow Semin in the KHL for sure though!




:bigblush:

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.

2 years for 11 million.

We'd still have room for others but I'd rather get Mueller and a leftover (cheaper than today) defencemen.

How anyone can think Semin is an ideal fit in Vancouver is frankly living in dreamland.
This guy was getting crucified by Crawford and Mcguire on TSN today.
You honestly think Semin would mesh with AV after the whole Shirikov debacle?

Stop being naive. Semin is not the type of player the Canucks covet. He'd cause more headaches than having Luongo as a backup to Schneider. Trust me there's a reason why most Russians have horrible reputation in the NHL. Think NASHVILLE!!!

Have teams even been pitching offers for him? I haven't heard anything. You hear about the other big names but not Semin. That tells you something right there I'd say.

He could be a good player here no doubt, but I can also see him disappearing when we need him at his best. I'm sick of the playoff disappearances from some of our guys as it is. 7 goals in 30 games for a guy of his caliber and his cap hit isn't quite cutting it.

I never want that guy on our team. Gillis would never sign him anyway, Semin is the cancer on any team he's on.

I'd go maximum 2 years at 5 mill per (at max.) I wouldn't risk a huge chunk on him. Sure he has the offensive abilities, but will he be able to come up clutch when the team needs it the most, is what I am most interested.
It only takes one hard fought series to make a rivalry

There is no reason for a team like for Vancouver to bring in a flake like Semin. Leave him to the desperate markets that need to get to the floor.

Besides, the absolute last thing the Canucks need is another soft euro.

If he somehow leads us to a cup, bring him on.

Can we get that guaranteed?

Well... there is not question he owns one of the best shots in the NHL. He does does have the creativity and great offensive game. But the thing that is disappointing about him is that he is very unpredictable and is somewhat moody.

Pass.

If you could get him for 1 year @ like 5 million id do it, but otherwise pass. Likes it been said already theres a reason why were not hearing much interest in the guy.

Not even if he offered to play for free. What part of 'do not bring a Cancer into the locker room' do you guys not understand?

Though I bet Mason Raymond would kick in 10% of his salary to help sign him. Be nice for him to not have to be the whipping boy around here for a change.
