If I have to choose one, I choose B.Wheeler.
He's hybrid winger/grinder. Plays gritty. Reminds me of the Robert Lang of olde.
I can be disappointed that Shero didn't pursue Semin after he failed to sign Parise. All of the other good wingers were signed while Shero sat with his thumb up his butt waiting for Parise to sign elsewhere. But Semin was still unsigned after Parise signed with minny.
You are telling me that it was smart to go into the season with the idiot wingers we had when Semin coulda been signed for a 1 year deal. Now we are going to have to trade assets for a winger probably less talented that Semin.
Parise is worth waiting around for.
Semin may not have wanted to sign here. It was also wildly rumored that Ray inquired about Semin.
Talent is great, but Semin is an enigmatic, egotistical, soft hockey player.
