At what point does Semin prove himself for a contract extension?

If Jussi does stick around, would he and Ruutu be the other wingers on the Jordan/skinner and Eric/Semin lines? Third line is inconsistent (if not putrid [points wise]) to say the least this year.
Ruutu won't contribute anything except useless goals in games that have already been decided. He'll lose 90% of board battles and constantly turn the puck over in the offensive zone, but it will be okay because he shows "effort" and is "physical." Basically he's LaRose at triple the price.
