Oh, did he? I had no idea. I thought he was still on a 4 million ish contract.
Taking that into consideration, I wouldn't go more than 6.5 for 4 years. His production is not worthy of a raise, but someone (maybe he is Pitts plan B) who missed out on Parise will give him a fat deal.
If he wants a raise then I would do 2/14 on Semin. He gets more but he is not locked up. He becomes UFA and his 7 million will be off the books right on time when we need to lock up a guy like Giroux. Another plus for Semin is that we get that goal scoring winger without having to trade one of Schenn/Voracek/Couturier.
I would rather go for Semin then trade for Ryan/Nash. Not because I rate Semin higher than those 2 (cause I don't), but because it will only cost us money instead of both money and blue chip assets.
