I honestly want 9 for Tedenby. God, it would be nice if he panned out.

I also think we need to sign someone this year, be it Semin or Doan. Next year we have some of our boys coming off the books and Lou's attention should be focused on them. Although, I guess they could be signed before ever becoming UFAs.

Semin got his number taken by a rookie on the Caps.
#9 was never an important number to anybody as far as we know.

9 is as good as his if he signs.

I figured as much. But that's a pretty moronic rumor, even by Eklund standards.

I lied.
Doan gets #9, he's normally #19.. #9 on some team Canada.
Teddy #11 - No more 21..
Semin #21

Honestly i'm beginning to think that losing Parise for Semin could potentially be a great thing for our team. The more i think about it, our problem in the LA series was FINISHING, glaring chance after glaring chance getting missed by our forwards. With Kovalchuk hurt we lacked anyone with killer finishing instincts and it really hurt us in those first few games against the Kings.

Although Parise is good, we all know that he's a garbageman with absolutely no shot whatsoever, i get that he brings intensity and a lot of other intangible skills; but honestly with the unexpected emergence of Adam Henrique i feel that he really takes the sting out of losing Zach as they share in my opinion a fairly similar style of play.

Gaining an ELITE sniper like Semin (regardless of what else has been said about him) might be precisely what this team needs, another person who can beat the goalie with a great shot on a fairly consistent basis. We've got a lot of playmaking ability, plus guys like Clarkson and the fourth line who can grind out the tough garbage goals; but having another shooter for the nights when Kovalchuk isn't on his game or is hurt could really do wonders for our offensive output. Might give our PP a nice boost too having more than one legitimate shooting threat, goalies won't be able to constantly cheat against Kovalchuk if Semin is on the other side.

The more i think about this, the more i want it. BRING HIM IN LOU.

Parise is better along the boards. I'm not sure how many of us realize how much losing Pari$e and Ponikarovsky is for our play down low in the opponents zone. Semin can replace his production, but I'm not sure if he can replace the board work.

That being said, I am very eager for Semin.

No. You are not going to replace Parise with one player.

Wouldn't be shocked if Lou is talking to Semin's people and trying to gauge if Semin would be willing to adapt to play here, at least a little bit.

Det and Chicago are probably gunning for him too and I'm sure a few other teams are.

We'll see.

With Semin you can replace the points, but ya that is about it. Other guys are going to need to step up and replace the intangibles that have been lost. Hope Kovy is up to that task.

I'm hoping DeBoer gives Henrique a lot more ice time.

Henrique should be on the second line. Maybe first if he works better with Kovy than Zajac. We got Josefson for third line center. Gionta/Carter for fourth. For the love of god two things we need to fix now with the guys we got. Kovy to left wing. Elias off of center.

I asked Alex Semin's agent if the Devils were interested in him; he said "I can't comment."
