Sure, Brunner has been awesome but it would be even more awesome if we had a right-handed sniper for both D and Z.

Honestly I always wanted KH to sign Semin, but I wasn't as crazy about it earlier as I thought Gus would replace Huds. Now since Gus is stuck in GR I really really wish we wouldve given Semin a try.
I'll have to dig stuff up, but Ansar Khan wrote some pieces about it. He didn't have a high opinion on Semin, and reportedly neither did the players management consulted about him. Management wasn't sold on Semin either.
