A team's willingness to play in the high $$ UFA market changes as the needs of the team change. Filling as big of a hole as Semin would leave would pretty much make this mandatory.

I think we agree that Semin would be very difficult to replace. In reality, I'm sure McPhee will know well in advance if Semin doesn't plan to sign another deal. I hope he's not dumb enough to let him walk if that's the case.
