I'm not saying that we should sign both Doan and Semin to big money long term deals. I didn't want both Parise and Suter for that reason. But I don't see the harm in signing Semin to a longer deal (4-5 years @6m - although I doubt Semin would sign it) or Doan to 3-4 years. And before we have to worry about Kunitz/Orpik's replacements (at least we have the D in the system for Orpiks), we have other contracts such as TK and Cooke and Dupuis who easily make up Letang's raise. Their replacements do not need to be 1.9m players. Hopefully Shero gets Letangs and Geno's deals done asap like Crosby's so that he knows what he has to deal with going forward.
