If you sign him to a one year deal and he hits 50 goals, then you really owe him big money to keep him. I dont think he is this massive risk like a lot of people preach.

Pens would still have cap and assets to trade for a RW for Crosby.
What's with Pens fans always trying to get players below market value? Ray Whitney at 40 years old (Jagr even older) signed for $4.5M/per and you expect Semin to give Shero some deal and sign for $5M/per?
