I don't think he's "cancerous" or even "poisonous" or really risks destroying the team. But I can imagine him getting ripped constantly by Therrien, and underperforming as a result. It just doesn't feel like a likely fit to me. I'd still try it for a year just to see, because we do need the goals pretty badly. But not with a lot of optimism that it would work out. Although if I was Semin and I had any insight at all into the Habs team and Therrien's reputation, I'd take one of the other short-term offers on the table instead. Don't see why he'd sign up to what seems like exactly the wrong persona to play under.
