Oh but the character concerns, et al, that were posted over and over again. You'd would of thought that Semin poisoned the drinking water in Washington. Shero should've been all over a one-year deal with Semin, now he's going to have to part with significant assets to fix the same problem that could of been potentially filled with just salary considerations.
maybe Shero tried to get him and he didn't want to come here. It doesn't seem all that unlikely that a guy like him would avoid playing for a coach like Bylsma.
