Terms on Semin

58 posts in this topic

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.

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

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.

He's going to probably want 2 years 5+ each year.

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.
