now, There's no doubt about it.
It'd be nice to know what teams he's thinking over, what offers were out there, if there are some that are longer than 1-2 years.

You'll have to look for a shrink or a fly on the wall in Mark Gandler's office or kiddie twitter to get the Semin news you seek.

Yeah... they are the most tight-lipped around.

Carolina Interested in Semin on 1-year deal

First off, Jim Rutherford's one of the smartest GMs at playing mind games through the media (I remember in 2011, Rutherford made a statement to the media that he wasn't going to be signing Pitkanen and Jokinen (I think it was those two) and that they would both be free agents, then less then a week later he signed both of them before they hit the market), so you should always take his public comments with a grain of salt. That said...

per Chip Alexander's twitter
Quote:
Rutherford says Canes still looking to add a top-6 forward. Says still interested in one-year deal with Semin.
Quote:
Rutherford has had several discussions in past week with Semin's agent.
He also says that Canes are likely out on Doan
Quote:
Rutherford says based on what some teams have offered Doan, unlikely Canes will sign him.
And that Carolina's interested in a tough guy
Quote:
Rutherford also says wants to add a "tough guy" for fourth line.

If I was Semin I'd probably take the offer. He'd get lots of Top 6 ice-time and the chance to show up the Capitals for not re-signing him 6 times a year. He could then parlay that into a better offer next summer, possibly back with Washington!

Interesting. This whole Semin thing has taken much longer than I think most expected.

Everyone was expecting him to bolt to the KHL, but he doesn't want to

I'm guessing Semin is waiting to see how the lockout talks go. Maybe if there is indeed a lockout, he'll sign with the KHL for a year.

He could easily sign a KHL deal now with an out clause like most players did in 04-05

Plenty of teams have been rumoured to offer 1 year deals to Semin - Penguins, Detroit etc and now Canes.

He is likely holding out for a multi-year deal.

That's pretty similar to what I mentioned on the flyers board a few weeks back.. Personally I'd rather have Semin than Doan on a 35+ contract at similar costs

Any news on Boston being interested?

I'm thinking maybe trade Krejci+Boychuck for Yandle and have a lineup like this:

Lucic-Seguin-Semin
Marchand-Bergeron-Horton
Peverley-Kelly-Caron
Paillie-Campbell-Thornton

Chara-Seidenberg
Yandle-Hamilton ( )
Ference-McQuaid

Don't know why Detroit isn't going hard after him after missing out on Parise. Hell LA should look at him as well
