Ted, as imperfect as he is, has been willing to spend.

I'm not arguing that Semin was the glue that held the team together. I'm simply stating this team looks a hell of a lot better with him on it. This team desperately needs another winger who can create offense with the puck on his stick.
I think the pursuit of Wolski, Hillen, and Fehr is a pretty darn good indication that they weren't willing to spend in the FA market.

And that's two consecutive years they haven't spent to the Cap. Not coincidentally, it's also the two offseasons since Ted bought the Wizards
