I'll be very surprised if Semin is a Flyer next season. Our main focus in the off season will most likely be on defense. With only Jagr being an upcoming UFA (among playing) forward and the depth we have, I don't see the reason to give out the type of contract I think Semin will command. He is immensely talented and still very young, unless he has a complete breakdown in the last half of the season, some GM will pay an insane amount of money for him.
If Jagr calls it a career (or signs somewhere else), and we sign a Russian-ish player, I think Andrei Kostitsyn is more likely. Not saying I'd want that, but he seems like more of a fit than Semin to me.
