Caps fans might not like it but this kid has zero value until he can start putting up points again.
In terms of his UFA value -- Semin will ask for big money -- which puts the team acquiring him at risk. His situation will be like Kaberle -- after most of the league passes he'll sign at a discount -- then the team will regret it for years.
Actually, what he's doing now is working hard and playing good two-way hockey for Hunter, aside from missing a couple of games with a shoulder injury that came when he drew a boarding penalty. But yeah, totally crapping the bed.
And 30 points in 37 playoff games is a huge risk. Yup. No way anybody would want a guy like that.
