IMO, the Habs are an 11th-15th place team next year. With Semin they would be a 6tth-10th place team.He's half of what we need, a goal-scoring winger with elite puck-possession and puck distribution ability, good size and excellent defensive awareness.

[[The other half of what we need is on the D-corps, which a Semin signing would have nothing to do with]]
Personally, I think that it speaks more of the type of player(s) he's looking for. He's said multiple times that he wants character players and neither Semin nor Jagr fit that bill. Proof is that he's wanting Shane Doan.
