Only way I take Semin over Dian is if he's significantly cheaper (which won't happen), or if I had to take one of them on a 4-5 year deal (I wouldn't want either signed that long, but if I had to, then semins youth comes into play)
Doan is more likely to decline over the 2 years than to improve or remain at his peak. Although players age unequally, I'd suggest comparing Kaberle as he is now with when he was a Leaf. IMO the Habs wouldn't get their money's worth if they outbid all the other teams vying to sign Doan.
