Sure, man. There's nothing we can do about it so I don't want to argue.

Anyone who thought Semin was bolting to the KHL for more money, you can get that out of your head now. He wants to, & will, play in the NHL.

Todd Cordell ‏@ToddCordell
I contacted Alex Semin's agent, Mark Gandler, for an update on negotiations: "All I can tell you is that Alex will sign with an NHL team
That's not what I meant.

I meant if teams are offering 4mil per over 6 years, that's only 24 mil. Perhaps he wants 6 years at 7 mil for 42 mil.

It may be in his best interest to take a short term deal for more money (2 years, 6 mil for a total of 12) to prove he can change his reputation and be worth the 7mil per he wants.

And the backup plan, if he fails to prove his worth, is to go to the KHL after that 2 year contract.

Strictly hypothetical.

I don't know about Semin, with his reputation of being a cherry picker, poor defensively, lazy, "coach killer"... I think it would be Kovalchuk all over again when he first came here and I'm not sure he has the willingness to learn

I think Clitsome is an even worse name to have.

Mueller's last concussion was caused by glare off the ice from an arena light. He's simply too fragile. I think he's worth a chance based on potential, but even hoping he turns into a 60pt player who can maybe jump onto the second line is not being realistic at this point. If we add Mueller, I just hope it's not the only addition we make.
