As far as Semin is concerned, I have no doubt he isn't the kind of player Shero likes but there was no downside taking him for the year, let me sums it up :
no assets to be given.
1 year deal.
we had the cap space to take him with an owner willing to spend.
right handed shot (which is painfully missing on our PP).
If Shero watched the playoffs last year then he should know Semin is willing to sacrifice for his team in the most important moments and be responsible defensively.
Talent/offensive weapon that draws attention away from our centers, give them someone to play with.

Anyway what is done is done, I just hope Shero will be able to trade for a top line winger come trade deadline but this look like a missed opportunity to me.
I would have liked to see Semin signed for sure. But I'd just like to point out that your problem with Shero is based almost entirely on speculation.
