So currently we are at "currently capable of scoring at a 40 goals/season pace on a yearly basis, as well as putting up ~80+ points that HF poster Brian Boyle approves of" heh heh. A debate that cannot be won.
I think Semin would part ways. Kariya and Selanne did so it's not unprecedented. Plus, keeping so many high priced players (AO, Backstrom, Green) is going to strain the Caps' cap. I also remember Semin spending time off of AO's line last season and still producing (40g season). Given the powers of magical foresight, knowing Semin was willing to sign at Gaborik's same 5 year $7.5M, would you be willing to trade Gaborik then for presumably strong assets that would improve our team further?
