I hear we are maybe looking at Semin on a short term deal, can anyone confirm this your side of the pond. Also having listened to an interview with Mikey Redmond he is convinced Kenny has a trade up his sleeve involving some of our young D going out for some scoring Fwd ? I can see this happening but not sure about the Semin rumblings.
Mantha is an opportunistic sniper who's trying to re-wire his hockey CPU to make himself a more complete, dialed-in hockey player. It's a process; he's a bit of a project. I don't consider him a question mark, though. He's so ungodly gifted and genuinely committed to improvement that I know it's only a matter of time before he "puts it all together."
I love everything you said there. I am now excited to see it all unfold.
