I don't think Semin is worth $7M/year (of course if you're going to pay Jones $4M/year, what's another $3M/year?) and even Rutherford said there are question marks:

“We would look at Semin on a short-term basis. We wouldn't want to get locked in to anything, because we've all heard the stories about him. We do like his skill level. It could be that we could bring him in for a year, get to know him and go from there in terms of considering something longer term.”

His skill level is undeniable. He's got as pure a shot as you'll find and he's pretty good defensively because he has high hockey IQ, which compensates for his laziness to some extent.

I think that once a guy is gone and your team sucks, Brouwer should have other things on his mind than Alexander Semin.
