Habs fans need to stop pretending we are too good for one way, streaky players. I'm not a Semin fan by any means, he's a temperamental player who often coasts on talent alone, but we don't have a single winger who can dangle the puck. I know everyone wants size and grit but you need skill too, and our only guys with above average hands are all centres.

You add a talent like Semin (assuming no team is stupid enough to give him ridiculous money), you suddenly have a top 6 of Plek, DD, Patches, Cole, Gionta and Semin, Bourque can go back to his natural AK-esque role, we hopefully will have a newly drafted forward who can fight for a place in the NHL. Suddenly we can have two legitimate lines with a potential to roll out 3 scoring lines.

I'm not saying overpay for someone like that but the new GM needs to at least look into that. Our wing depth right now is among the worst in the NHL.
