I call this the "Jeff Hamilton" rule. About 15 games and 10 points (5 or 6 goals) into his Hurricanes career, I bought his jersey. On my small scale, that was a contract extension for me personally.

Less than 20 games is never, ever, never, enough to invest into the future of a player. Not ever. And we're talking about ten. I think that makes it pretty obvious how I feel about it.

We'll see how highly Semin has "bought in" when the points stop coming. When the line stops scoring. I think he'll come through for us, I really do. I think he knows that this year is an audition for a big contract if not here then elsewhere. He would be silly to pass that opportunity up in such a short season.
