We can't just get Ryan. With Semin hes a free agent so the risk is just the salary that we pay him, but to get someone like Ryan whose under contract we would have to give up a bunch of major pieces which im not willing to do
Alex Semin is definitely a talented player...when he wants to be lol. For that reason I don't think he' ll settle in well with the Canucks organization. I can just see Semin saying "I don't care" after a bad game. This might create tension with other players and even team morale problems.
