In my opinion, the only reason to trade Semin to prevent him from walking away for nothing is if you actually believe he'll walk at the end of his contract. With his BFF Ovechkin here and the situation he has built himself, I find it hard to believe he'll leave unless McPhee really lowballs him.

If he does walk, they can always spend his $6.7M on other players.
