Then you have Carter centering Williams and Clifford (or maybe Pearson if he earns a roster spot out of camp), and Richards centering the third line with King and Toffoli (again, if he earns a spot out of camp as well). Then a fourth line of Stoll centering Nolan and Lewis.
I agree that if both Penner and Gagne are gone that he would be a good replacement. I wonder at what cost though. Gagne can likely be kept for around 2.5-3M. So lets say DL can get Semin for around 6M. Is the difference between the players worh it?
