Dreger is tweeting it now after a couple days of speculation it was going to happen.

1 year, 7 mil

I didn't really have any strong opinion on Semin coming here. It seemed interesting, but risky.

It's one more option gone though.

Wow, that's a lot of money. Holland must not want to spend any of that 13 million he's got.

One year, zero risk. Nothing but upside and instead Kenny is sitting on his $13m, watching Dreger waiting for him to tweet that Doan has resigned with Pheonix. I knew the Wings weren't interested in Semin, and I didn't expect him to sign here, but watching him sign a one-year deal elsewhere burns my ass.

Stagnant offense. Defense takes a huge hit with no replacements.... but hey, we improved our backup :P

7 bills? Glad he's not coming. It was just like a, let's pull the trigger on this guy because we can, not because we have to.

Ride that cap space Kenny, we'll get something done!

Good news best of luck to him. Carolina will they be any good this year? With Jordan Staal and now Semin being the big newly acquired names. Hmmmm. Man the East imo is looking tough....

Carolina's forward core is going to be money. At least on the top line.


That said, what.

I was hoping to see Semin sign with Detroit. I know the 1-year deal will sting some people as well, but Holland and Co. must have really seen something they didn't like. It says a lot that such a talented player went unsigned for so long.

I think the fact we have a monster on our team negates any problems our team has.

Oh well, 7 mill is too much (not that we are using it anyway;) so good luck Semin. What's left Doan or a trade? Our roster looks set kids...

We'll have one hell of an AHL team. Go Griffins!

Not the type of person I want in the locker room with the young kids we'll have up next season. If he can handle playing in Carolina, produce, and stay out of trouble I'll eat my words.

On a one year no risk deal with the amount of cap space we have, I'd be happy to give him $8.5m, was really hoping we'd end up with him if it was one year, too bad

We definitely didn't have to. It would've been fun to see what he'd do with Dats though.

Of course, there's also the risk that the Wings would've added another extremely talented player with a questionable work ethic. For one year though, that's not a huge risk.

Not heartbreaking, but the one-year deal would've made it more attractive. I figured Semin would be looking for longer term headed into the CBA. And with a one year deal, you'd have to think he's more likely to bust his ass to prove his doubters wrong and get the big payday next year.

1 year deal no risk at all. Yet another option gone. Not much left now

I simply have to disagree with the "no risk" assessment of signing Semin to a one-year deal. No risk after this season, but plenty of risk for this season!

The 'canes are my second-favorite team, and I really do like Semin - just not in the context of our team. So this is pretty sweet. :cheesy:
