Seems light for Washington but whatever
I'm sure McLellan would like having Filppula.
Well I think Washington has a strong need for a #2 center (Not that Johansson won't be one but I don't think he is ideal for this year and next perhaps) and Alex Semin, while a fantastic player, is on that last year of a $6.7 million deal.
It would address a need and free up ALOT cap space with Chimera gone as well ($8.5 mil total less Pavelski's $4 mil (?)...thats $4.5 of cap goodness. I mean and Pavelski is singed thru 2013 I believe.
Even if Detroit added a 2nd I'm not sure if the Sharks do it. They are trying to win now and while draft picks are nice I would think they'd want quality players. Maybe its just that I'm not as high on Filppula as some tho.
While I really like Semin's game compared to most Caps fans this is just my personal take and a 2nd and Alex Semin for Pavelski would not be enough lobsided in his favor for McPhee perhaps.
Again if I was the Sharks I wouldn't do it. Not enough immediate quality.
