Coming off a 54-point season and following it up with another 50-point season (unless he really heats it up), I find it really hard to believe that Semin sees 6.5M in the NHL. While Semin is vastly more talented than Cole or Leino, he also comes with significant baggage associated with playing hard. Perhaps if he were still putting up 70-80 point seasons while coasting through stretches, I could see it.

If he gets more than 5M, I bet it's on a 1-year deal with a team hoping to get lucky.
