I don't think any team is gonna repeat Burke's mistake and offer the moon for him.

Semin is more or less the same player and he only managed a one year deal. Better than Kessel defensively, no less physical (even more if you can believe it, not that it matters), better wrist shot. Slower and worse snapper though. Playmaking about even, Kessel might have more vision but Semin can complete the most impossible passes if he sees a window. Better stats career wise and as impressive as Kessel in his first few playoff performances. Yet he only managed a one year deal. Kessel would probably get more since he's not as "enigmatic" but I doubt any team would go for broke on him. Probably deadline deal in the last season of his contract similar to Hossa or Kovalchuk deals but lower return.
