Semin isn't some small guy that will get pushed around. He's not the perfect player because he isn't a physical player but he is a player with wheels, an actual sniper type of player, and knows how to play off of a play-maker like Thornton who generally is at his best offensively with a right-handed shooter on his line. He will probably be too rich for this team's blood but he'd be a good way to go for this team that is getting slower and slower by the day.

Trade Nemo for Emery... Start Stalock or Sateri
What's the difference between doing that in net and doing that at any other position? This is no different than what they did with Ehrhoff going to Demers. Giving the youth a chance to step up and run with the job. Besides that, the one position that you can go out and find a vet really quick if they falter is in net. There is always one available in free agency and always one that a team is willing to dump.
