I don't care about the Staal incident. Semin is paid to score goals and he has only been mildly effective in that role over the last 2 seasons. He may be capable of being a 6-7M per year forward, but he's obviously capable of being a 50 point forward as well. At age 28, you're not a deal based on what you could do, but a lot moreso on the your career as it is currently trending. If you sign consecutive 6.5+ million dollar deals and produce worse in each one, you don't get a long term deal for the same or more money.... unless Jay Feaster is signing you I suppose.
