What do y'all think?

Quote:
Craig Custance talked to the agent for Alex Semin and told him that his client will be hitting the open market on July 1. A return to Washington doesn't sound like it's in the cards: "It was good while it lasted. With the lack of playoff success, with the direction they are going. They decided to change directions. That's within their rights. Alex doesn't fit into that system obviously."

Pass. You know how Lindy Ruff and Russian hockey players who expect top tier ice time get along...

the fact that semin couldnt get clutch ice time minutes is alarming that he plays with little passion and little regard for anything besides playing in the opponents end.

the risk isnt worth the reward.

He certainly played with passion and heart in the playoffs.

he was routinely benched late in games when the caps just couldnt afford to give up a goal. he couldnt be counted on.

Sometimes coaches just bench players. Obviously Washingtons former coach didn't like semin much just like lindy never liked Afinogenov. I think it's more of a money issue than anything. Russian players usually never take less even if they played with a good team. By dumping semin and now wideman I believe they'll send a couple of nice offers out to Parise, Suter and maybe even Schultz.

Schultz has a short list of Edm, Van, Ott, Tor, and NYR.

Semin has not yet proven himself as a two-way forward, until then he reputation will keep R&R from considering him...not to mention the salary he'll be expecting.
