You mean like the Kings?

Islanders, Edmonton and Columbus certainly have no problem ''doing what it takes'' to win championships. So far nada.

There is no one way to build a cup. You also don't go from lottery team to contender in a year (unless you shouldn't have been there in the first place, like Philly).
You get good early picks, bring in quality free agents, and build winners.

Semin can be a strong contributor of a winning team. I don't see why he wouldn't.
So, ya, maybe adding him will only make us into a bubble team. So? Maybe the year after that, we make other additions and become even better.
It's not because he won't make us into a contender next year that we should just pass up on him.

Cole and Plek aren't making us into contenders. Shall we trade them? None of our players are, shall we trade all of them?
You bring in key pieces one at a time. Right now, we're lacking raw talent and skill up front and goal scoring. Semin responds to both those needs.
