I'm pretty sure Semin is going to sign for no fewer than 3-4 years, and he'll do it in a place where it's less likely that he'll clash with a coach that will be riding his ass non-stop.
Looks like he won't be signing with a contender then. I'm not sure who would be willing to gamble on a big money softie with an ego for 3-4 years. Not to mention one with the grossest last name ever. Yeah, I said it.
Btw a 4 year contract really ends up gimping him. No one will want to give him the long contract he's looking for at 32. He wants big money security. If all he's getting offered is 3 to 4 year deals he's best off signing a 1 year deal on whatever team will inflate his stats most. Capitalism is a *****.
