Semin instantly gives the Canes the firepower so desperately needed. I absolutely love this move. Biggest plus is we can finally remove Chad Larose from ever playing in the top 6.

I do not foresee the Staals playing together as many seem to.
I know Welsh has kind of been penciled in at 3rd center even though he is still unsigned and with all of the other young talent that never sticks I will believe it when I see it
The key is the Canes now have a lot of flexibilty and some depth in the system for the third/fourth lines in Dalpe, Bowman, Boychuk and Samson.

I think the lines will look more like:

Semin, E Staal , Tlusty
Skinner, J Staal, Ruutu
Larose, Jokinen, Dwyer
Nodl, Brent, Stewart

Semin, E Staal, Jokinen
Skinner, J Staal, Ruutu
Larose, Welsh, Tlusty
Stewart, Brent, Dwyer
