Semin's Future (Signs one-year, $7M deal with CAR)

What is his future like? Is he going to resign in washington, or anywhere else in the NHL? or is he going to Russia? How much will he sign for?
Knowing he is unmotivated, is he still a guy that will get 70-80 points a year (not does he have the ability too, because obviously he has the talent, but realistically will he)?

Nobody knows. If you could find a way to consistently motivate him, he has the talent to be one of the best in the league. Unfortunately, only Semin knows what motivates him.

I wouldn't be surprised if he becomes part of the Lokomotiv rebuild next year. Not sure how many NHL teams want him. He's basically Alex Kovalev with less talent.

Plenty of NHL teams want him. It's foolish to think otherwise.

The real question is how many NHL teams will want him at a salary he'll accept.

Barring a huge playoff breakout, or a bargain contract, I don't see him back in Washington next year.

I'd love to keep him, though I suspect I'm in the minority on that. The smart money is on a KHL departure methinks.

Why would anyone say no one wants him? Florida seems like they would want him, after all they are doing a pretty good job with their band of misfits.

Also believe it or not, I think the Red Wings would take him they only have defenseman that want to shoot the puck sometimes. Datsyuk and Zetterberg feeds to Semin one timers are something I would like to see.

Overall though, I think they should keep him and Boudreau shame him by putting old man Knuble on a line with him and pointing out how much faster Knuble is skating then him. Seriously, I think that and Knuble himself would make him work harder.

Knuble in my opinion is the only one really doing something right, his linemates just never follow him in on the forecheck, maybe Sasha will.

I'd take a bag of bugs for the most inconsistent player the Caps have. always has been, always will be.

Much rather have an inconsistent player then a consistently bad player... Nucks would take him in a heartbeat. Since you just want to dump him we will send Malhotra and Higgins for him.

If Semin does not change into a more consistent performer, I can see the CAPS cutting bait with him. This talent level is worthless if he isn't going to use it. In that case the CAPS would be better off getting a less talented but more consistent performer for less money.

Florida's "band of misfits" have good work ethics; quick reminder - these are the same guys who waived Michael Grabner (tonnes of talent, didn't have good enough work ethics at the beginning of camp). Dave Tallon looks for character players - something Semin doesn't show on a daily basis.

I think it's time to part ways with Sasha. When he feels like it he is always one of the best players on the ice, but he doesn't feel like it enough. I think we should try to deal him while he has some value and get something useful out of him. Kuznetsov will be on this team next year and he should be able to take Semin's place pretty quickly, and it won't hurt that he'll be playing for about 6 million a year less than Semin.

Where's that ranting torch guy picture?

Trade
ALL THE RUSSIANS

Seriously though if Semin could be used as bait to dump Hamrlik off on someone, I'd be all for it (we'd obviously have to get a real D back, though).

Clearly the guy is a mystery. Really, why is the guy not motivated?

He plays for a young talented team with a Russian superstar and is being paid very well. The guy appears to be the next coming of Alexandre Daigle, taking it all for granted then POOF... gone.

Let's see how he plays in the coming weeks. Personally I'm more concerned about Ovi then Semin at this point.

20pts in last 25 games. Not bad, but obviously not great. A ****-tonne better than October and November.

PTS in Oct & Nov = 10
PTS in Dec, Jan, & Feb = 20

PIM in Oct & Nov = 32
PIM in Dec, Jan & Feb = 12

He seriously may have mental issues. Bi-Polar disorder or something. I thought it about Kovalev and I think Semin is in the same boat.

Not sure how you can fix that

Why would he...? Try to explain, it's pretty random to assume that someone is having serious mental issues. I believe he's just a quiet guy, quite the opposite of his fellow russian Ovechkin. Just because he's having a slack season doesn't mean he's mentally ill.

TBH, as a hockey player who played with serious anxiety/bi-polar problems up to late high school level, it's very hard to play when you're feeling the peak of pressure/stress. You almost feel a compulsion to do everything 100% perfect and that leads to mistakes, and you have to be very very aware of it to stay level. A large number of people with this are very quiet and closeted because we'd rather not put ourselves out there than fail or be ostracized, which I think is why you don't see any players admitting it. The normal person grips his stick a little harder, but for people with bi-polar, anxiety, etc., you over think every little thing. When I say every little thing, I mean on the ice, off the ice, everything. What your coach says to you in passing, how your teammates act, your stats... everything.

Disclaimer: people with anxiety get a lot more loose lipped with alcohol on nights like super bowl night ^_^. But I am being serious. I've experienced this all first hand. The hardcore hockey kids are almost like skater/snowboard kids except they're on a rink.

I would be fine keeping him if we move Green. It was my problem with things all along. We can not have 11mill in question marks. Will Semin show up? Will Green stay on the ice? You can not win a cup these days with 11mill not showing up. But i di think the team can get by having one.

And I would keep Semin every time over Green.

I know you have heard this a 100 times already "We will never be able to count on Mike Green for a 20+ game playoff run"

SWAG: Semin resigns for 3years/5M per and limited no trade.

If he turns that down, he 'll be moved at the deadline.

Green will get qualified and have a similar fate next year this time.
