It doesn't matter what anything thinks about Semin, it isn't going to happen.
Oh, so you know this for a fact? Or you're just looking into your crystal ball? People said the same about Kariya, yet we landed him. Makes sense to add Semin.. Grachev isn't playing in the NHL, and Semin would be a nice addition to mentor Tarasenko.

You do need warriors, but you also need a bona fide star, something the Blues lack. Name the last team who won the Cup without a star. You're going back a decade at least. Fact is we need a star on this team; Petro isn't there yet. Semin might not have been as offensively productive under Hunter, but he can be that offensive threat and can help drive those other fast forwards like Perron, Oshie, MacDonald, and Tarasenko.
