Whitney has been great, but he is bound to decline very soon.
Whitney is coming of a season where he almost potted 80 points and
he has missed a total of 9 games the last four seasons.
For comparison's sake, Selanne is two years older, almost hit 70 points this year and may play another season.
I doubt Whitney is bound to decline that badly in the next two years, which is probably the term he will be looking for.
Semin on the other hand is one of the softest players I have ever seen and I would take Whitney, at his declining age, over Semin, 100 times out of 100 without a moment's hesitation.
