I'll pass on us signing Semin. We have a surplus of Forwards and let Nyquist get some top 2 line minutes IMO.

The main reason I want Semin or Doan isnt because we NEED them up front. We have 4/5 solid lines as is ... but if we wana trade for a good dman well have to part ways with Filp/Franzen/Cleary so having a good peice to replace them (or improve on them) right now would be nice.

Last week The Hockey New's Lyle Richardson reported that Semin wanted two years and ten million dollars for his upcoming contract. I couldn't understand why nobody had jumped at that yet. He's now citing a report out of the Raleigh N.C. that suggests Semin is asking for 7 million dollars. He didn't report on the term. While I'm skeptical that sports writer out of N.C. knows anything about hockey, if this report is indeed true, then Alexander Semin can go f*** himself (as much as I'd love to see that shot on Datsyuk's wing).

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."

10 mil split over 2 years? I'd be absolutely fine with that.

Speaking of which, here is an excellent article on Semin and why we should absolutely go for him. Honestly, if Crawford and Mcguire didn't go on their little anti-Semintic (had to do the pun) rant on the 1st, he almost definitely would have been signed by now.

Everyone forgets, stat wise, he looks just about the same on paper as Parise.

Signing him short term and trading for a defenseman could actually salvage our offseason.

I find the fact that people here don't want the Wings to sign Semin to be mind boggling. He instantly becomes the best winger the team has. I'm not suggesting the Wings break the bank with him but 10-12 over 2 years or 6.5 for one year would be a great addition to the team and without the long term commitment. If he is looking for a longer term deal I'm not sure.

I would think to trade for a Bobby Ryan might cost too much and I would rather add Semin without losing Flip.

That is what I like the most about Doan and Semin alike. The fact we don't have to lose Flip is huge, he's top 3 in my mind. Doan I am sure will sign with NY at a discount to win but I hope Kenny is really kicking the tires of this Semin thing, if not then someone on the inside isn't a fan...

Closing this one, since Semin's now signed with Carolina.
