Certainly not no risk. But for one year, the Wings having cap space, and few options out there, it would've been lower risk than I expected.
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!
I seem to remember Holland saying from the get go he wasn't interested in Semin though. I thought maybe that was a poker face, but I guess not.
As I said before, Semin seemed like a good candidate for another Holland reclamation project.
