I agree. Outside of Parise and Suter, nobody of this free agent class really appealed to me. They just didn't want to sign here for whatever reason. Shero tried. All he can do is put forth an offer he thinks is fair and wait for their decision.

Semin was intriguing, but far too enigmatic for Shero/this team to take a chance on at that kind of money. Shero's not a "deal for the sake of it" kind of guy. He'll hunker down, and do his homework all season looking for a trade that will make the team better. I think he's all but done with free agency as far as trying to acquire a big name, marquee player goes. If we're going to get a top-flight guy, it's either going to be through a trade of by drafting/developing him ourselves.
