Just add one guy...will cost us AA and maybe a 1st or 2nd round pick and that guy is Semin . Think about it...I know he is hated ...but he needs a strong playoff to garner a huge contract next season. He can rifle the puck...we have the guys that can play with him and if we did luck out and win a Cup this year then the chance of winning back to back are very slim these days . Keep in mind that we have no interest in resigning him after the playoffs ...strictly a rental !

We would then use next season2012-13 to get over the hangover and then resign all our RFA'a for 2013-14 and have worked Kreider-Miller-Erixon and McIlrath into our lineup without ANY cap problems .

Of course by adding those guys to our already great roster we have made our team younger and faster and hungrier as we start on a 3 year cup run seriously hard because we will be stacked with a great crew of kids and vets . Along the way we add Jordan Staal if we have the cap money !

Crazy ?...Yes and no . Somebody could ride Semin a long way in the playoffs if he gets hot and he ABSOLUTELY needs a big playoff performance !!! Maybe the Penguins get him...or the Bruins...I'm sure both are looking hard .

Maybe Semin is Plan B ?
