Starting to think that it was Parise not Lou that was the driving force behind not signing an extension during the season and opting for the one year contract last year. Could very well be that Lou threw some potential offers his way and he used some excuse for not signing yet.

I'm not sure if Lou will want to bring Semin in, but you wouldn't hear anything about it even if he did.

I think that's ridiculous too. Wonder what his former teammates must think, playing with him and building that camaraderie all season, only to learn now that he always had his mind elsewhere, always had one foot out the door.

While DeBoer, Lou, Kovy, and everyone else put him up on a pedestal as a leader.

Nice to know that that's how he repaid the organization he is so grateful to.
exactly.

I'm sure Kovy is calling Semin to come join us.

I wonder whose choice it really was to make Parise the Captain. If it really was Deboer I would be pissed that a guy I trusted to lead my team, bolted for the good ol green paper.

Doubt he gets there, it's just for leverage. No need for anyone to freak out.

I think the opposite. I think they never negotiated during his injury and they never offered him a substantial contract because they couldn't.

Especially when he said all the right things about how much he appreciated your coaching job too.

It's a very cloudy situation. On both sides really.

NJ is in the middle of some obvious financial burden.
Zach was the best free agent forward, while his boyhood friend was the best free agent defenseman.

It was a perfect storm for Zach to leave.

Ever since Henrique's OT goal, I feel like we've run out of hockey karma.

We're due for some, right?

I cant be the only one insanely pumped about possibly signing him? Biggest knock on him is his attitude and work ethic at times, if there is any team that can fix that it's us.

I honestly think we'll make a splash. Especially with all of the excitement and $$$ generated with the cup run. I think it bodes well to interest a new ownership group as well...but who the hell knows

We actually can't fix it...our fans will overlook it and call it fixed.

I just don't know about Semin. He's got a ton of talent, but only plays hard when he wants to. Granted, Kovy does the same thing at times, but with him I still see a desire and drive to win. I'm not sure Semin has that. But then again, I don't watch the Caps enough to really know.
