Semin... would have helped us... not a lot of cap space was there to shoe-horn him in, mind you, but it could have been done. I don't think 10 games of shiny happy new home fan response is enough to wear away all the warts he accumulated over his career. The warts are real enough. But overstated. You can trade them off against the positives he brings, and still get a net benefit to the team.

Doan... would have helped us just as much. But then we were talking a long-term deal, and that would have carried soooo much risk down the road, could have been a disaster at some point.

Backes... chewing your team out on twitter seems kind of weak. Well, if that's the only place it happens. If it's just re-iterating what he already said to their faces, then no worries.

Gionta seems like a genuinely "nice guy" to me. Classy, reasonably intelligent, and respectful. Good enough traits for the captain.
