Whoa.

Leafs at Knight 03-25-2013 05:16 PM

Too much IMHO

Lord Flacko* 03-25-2013 05:17 PM

Good for him, he deserves it.

AKL 03-25-2013 05:17 PM

Wow, didn't see this coming right now. Good for both sides I guess. Hopefully he keeps up his current play.

MoJoSauce 03-25-2013 05:17 PM

Lot of $, but good for Semin

Shellz 03-25-2013 05:17 PM

I wasn't expecting that. I really hope he can keep his play up for the Canes.

Deen 03-25-2013 05:17 PM

Risky deal for Carolina.

Halpysback* 03-25-2013 05:18 PM

Strange, at that point I'd think you'd go for more term to lower the hit.

Guess Carolina doesn't value cap space quite as much.

Koto 03-25-2013 05:18 PM

i thought 7M on a one year was a good gamble, but with term is a major risk imo, 6M would have been a lot nicer with that term.

MVP of West Hollywd 03-25-2013 05:18 PM

Semin signing that 1 yr was brilliant, heh. Put CAR in a position where they had to pony up the big bucks if he played well at the halfway point.

Dayummmm. Very lucrative deal for Semin. Good on him.

Captain Wolverine 03-25-2013 05:18 PM

He earned it this year, and term is very good. Congrats 'canes fans!

Stars99Lobo37 03-25-2013 05:18 PM

Holy Jesus. 7 million per is :amazed::amazed:

OttawaSenators11 03-25-2013 05:18 PM

Good deal if he stays motivated, which i am not sure he could do.

TOML 03-25-2013 05:19 PM

Wow. Good for him. They have a few big contracts now. That's why i was thinking they'd go far in the playoffs this season. I guess they still can, but it's lookin' tough. When's Ward back?

Wow that is a lot of money especially just after 30 games on a new team. But he has played well. Very risky move!!

Hard to do that now. Good deal for them.

Sabre Dance 03-25-2013 05:19 PM

Semin has been good all along. Just had a lot of haters.

its not that much. 7m for a PPG player whos pretty solid all around.

Ceremony 03-25-2013 05:19 PM

Surprised at the length for that price. But if he plays the way he has this year, he's worth it.

Tkachuk4MVP 03-25-2013 05:20 PM

Yowza. Cue 90% of non-Canes fan calling this an over payment while every Canes fan celebrates it.
