Now back to the topic. What realistically could Det offer that would keep the caps under the cap AND give them a better playoff shot ( In there eyes ).

I saw someone post Filppula but it would have to be more complicated than that.
Probably Filppula, a top prospect, and a 1st, which personally I would not do at all, I like Semin and all but:

A) He only has 1 year under contract (An expensive contract might I add).

B) Filppula is a very underrated player, while he does not put up a lot of numbers like Semin, he's our legit number 2 center and fantastic defensively, dealing him would make us weaker in the middle.

C) Along with B, I would not be happy with giving away one of our blue chippers if not needed to, as far as I'm concerned, there's no need for Semin, I would rather just wait for the deadline or next summer if they want a high end forward.
