I swear i heard that Semin didn't want to come back. It seems as if he felt underappreciated, especially under Hunter. Even though Hunter is gone i think the feelings are still there. Perhaps i misunderstand but it does not seem as if Washington can guareentee sign Semin. Also Hemsky is a gamebreaker who shows up in the most improtant games/moments. Semin's playoff performances were always exaggerated in terms of how bad they are but he really isn't the guy you want to turn to when the chips are down. Also the comments that his ex teammate (Gordon?) made last offseason about his commitment is not a very good reflection on Semin tbh.
