I think we have to be careful not to feel forced into an option, because other ones have dried up.
I've gotten the sense, in talking to different people, that Semin's interest in the NHL is not entirely reassuring. So in the end, the reason he hasn't landed anywhere, despite his obvious talents, might have more to do with his own desires rather than 30 teams dismissing him.
As for me personally, I'm not really a fan. I find him to be a floater, invisible for crucial times during a game and really not a guy who makes this team any more primed to win a championship. He may help win a few additional regular season games, but I don't see him as such a great option that I'd commit to him and not see if something better presents itself during the season.
