However, 65% of voters said that they would bring Semin in on a two-year deal worth $10 million.
Carolina Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford said of Semin, “We wouldn’t want to get locked in to anything because we’ve all heard the stories about him. We do like his skill level. It could be that we could bring him in for a year, get to know him and go from there in terms of considering something longer term.”
In the NY Post, Larry Brooks writes, ” Alexander Semin is perhaps the most skilled sniper on the market but it’s difficult to imagine the Rangers engaging in the type of long-term deal the impending Capitals free agent is believed to be seeking.”
