That brings me to our scoring issues which will be addressed this off-season I believe. Obviously Semin sticks out as one possible option.
1) Semin (6.5 a year max replace Frolov on the LW with him)
2)Backes (4.5 max for him throw him on out 2nd line as rw)
3) Frolov (4 max for him hopefully he produces)
Those would be my top 3 in order that we should go after. I would love to get Semin and put him on our second line so teams would be in a bind with matching d-pairs. He would immediately solve our secondary scoring issues. But with Kreider and Grachev being left wings it would not make sense to sign a LW which makes it logical to sign Backes and make him and cally interchangeable on our 2nd/3rd lines.
I'd be very happpy if we opened next season with that lineup.
