Fact that you are asking for LESS is really starting to make me wonder about Semin.

Nashville has 3rd and 4th liners: Boyd (RFA), Thuresson (RFA), hell even Olvecky (RFA).

If all you are asking for is Arnott, Tootoo, and rights to Hamhuis for Semin that's a semi steal for Nashville BUT they lose a lot of grit with Tootoo. Could Boyd, Thuresson or Olvecky make up for that?
Not much grit on display by Tootoo this past year, but he's certainly more than capable. Of course, I believe that was on purpose due to ensuring disciplined play and overall continued modification of his role on this team.

The key to this trade for Nashville is salary going back- which is why I focused on Arnott and Dumont (and was grudgingly ok with swapping the latter with Erat).

They still have to sign Hornqvist and (hopefully) one or two of the R/UFA defensemen and likely stay around $46M.
