You very well may be right.

But bottom line: Adding a lazy Alex Semin to our lineup makes us better than we are now.

even still, his UFA rights can be flipped for a late round pick before the draft if we didn't keep him. We can at least get that for a guy thats free.

Because if he turns out to be as lazy & selfish as reported & the Wings wouldn't want him back after 1 season, teams would be falling over themselves to grab his UFA rights early huh?

Money on the Board 2014: $5 per series, $5 per sweep, $5 per Kronwalling, $10 per Marchand Kronwalling, $1 per Zetterberg game, $1 per 2013 Calder Cup roster player goal

There seems to be many rumours of Semin leaking out.

Id rather have you out there. Youre only 28, so at least you have some upside.

Bertuzzi had 45 points in '10-'11 despite his most common linemates being Abdelkader and Cleary. And the combination of he and Datsyuk wins the team a lot of shootouts.

I just wish these guys would decide....soon....I would like either one of them, or both, but geez lets get a move on so Holland can deal with having about 18 forwards and who to trade...

That link took me to the lines for this season, not 10-11. But changing it to that, it comes up that for even strength Bert was with Flip and Franzen the most. Then Hudler and Flip. Then Z and Franzen. Then Cleary and Zetterberg.

I'm not really familiar with that site though so I can't say how accurate it is.

Super glue your testicles to Shane Doan's horse and you may be able to play for the Wings. We need this kind of buy in with the players. When you fall off the horse, instead of getting back up again, you need only superglue your testicles to the saddle so you don't fall off to begin with. Something tells me The Axe spends alot of time playing with his dingy.

Awesome article on why a team should be willing to take a chance on Semin. My apologies if it's already been posted somewhere, I didn't feel like scrolling back through the entire discussion to verify.

GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

Read this as well, makes sense. I mean if Hudler can do it. Just think about Z, Dats, or Filp passing him the puck?!

I was using the same source, but it appears that I had it set to "Most recent game." But I really don't believe that my failure to change it to "All Season (to date)" warrants me apologizing to you, especially considering that I was right: he did not play with Datsyuk much at all during that season--far from that: he played his largest chunk of time with a Filppula who had not yet peaked, and a Franzen whom many here, yourself included, have accused of being lazy and unmotivated, and his second largest with Filppula and a Hudler who was having an atrocious season--and produced 45 points nonetheless.

In fact, you asking for an apology is rather obnoxious. Indeed, I'm fairly certain that it was meant in that spirit.
