Sign Alex Semin


Recommended Posts

The part everyone supporting Semin is ignoring is he's not hoping to stay in the NHL at a discounted rate. If he doesn't get what he wants, a KHL team will pay it to him to come home.

If we only pay him for one dimension of his game, then that's fine, but he can't pretend to command a high salary on a team like the Canucks where player buy in is as important as the cap structure. If he wants to come him, let him do it for $3-4M. If he asks for $5-6M+, then wish him well in the cold Russian winters.
