A lot of mixed feelings on this.
For those that say he wants a long term contract, I am not so sure. It seems the league is very sour on him. He might think he is better served trying to remove that image with a 1 year contract and potentially sign for bigger money. If the guy wasnt such a headcase, he would probably be one of the best players in the league and command 7m+. But as it is right now, he wont get that.
At least a couple ex-teamates have come out and publicly said the guy is a headcase. How often does that happen? You must have some serious character flaws to get someone to do that.
I love the risk/reward with Semin, but I seriously doubt he will work here. If it was 1 year, I would probably do it. There are so many good players that are going to be available next season, I would be saving money for that class. So I wouldnt have any problems giving Semin 5m for a year. If the guy is a headcase, cut him. Dolan wont care about the money.
