(STL) Chris Stewart 3 million for one year but RFA

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.

14 games in, our 3rd line C has more goals then a pure sniper like Semin. He ain't the goal scorer he used to be.

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.

Completely unsubstantiated gut-feeling. In truth. Discount the argument at your leasure .

...but I do think that we are more appealing than Carolina to most players. Not least a top6 winger signing a one year deal.
