I personally wanted them to sign Semin, and was really angry when he just did the one year deal. I would still offer him a 3 year 5 million per contract this offseason and trim fat off the payroll to make it possible. But it could be Datsyuk knows through Ovie and the other Russians that while they all like Semin, having him on your own team for 82 games instead of just a two week tournament is kind of a pain.

An interesting thing going on right now, is when do we start handing out extensions to Brunner, Howard and Filppula? I honestly expected one of the last two to be extended by this point.
Um, I believe it was the exact opposite.
