The Flames would be much much better off throwing an offer at Semin at the deadline, if that was there plan, which it probably isn't.

My guess is the Flames "rebuild" won't go on as long as peopel think. Feaster has done a great job of acquiring some potential in Baertschi, Horak, Byron, Comeau, Smith, Granlund, and Butler.

My guess is the Flames go heavy after Parise and Suter. Semin could, however, be a backup plan. I don't think we'll see the long Oiler style rebuild. I think Florida is a great example of how it doesn't work. Florida eventually said @#$@# it and added a bunch of vets and UFA to the talent they had. A much better way to go.
