Been reading the Caps board and a lot of them say he often looked disinterested, even in this past years playoffs. If it were about the money he'd be in the KHL already. What's his deal?
I think as cliche as it sounds, he is "enigmatic." some nights he is absolutely on fire, while others he takes bad minors and looks completely out of it. I do not think Lou will sign him, I think we will likely go into the season with what we have or sign Wellwood/Mueller/trade Tallinder for top 9 player.
All this would just get better if we could somehow trade Larsson, and sign Suter, and Garisson.
In all seriousness even if we don't end up with Semin hopefully we were really in the running. Being in the running, and at least talking with his people tells me Lou definitely won't let the spot at forward go unfilled, and he has something up his sleeve by way of trade if not signing.
That sounds familiar to a poster who hasnt been seen in a while
I spotted him last week actually. I think under the name friendofjackedforlife look it up. He claimed he was ''Jacked's agent'' Also I have spotted another poster around here that hasn't been since before UFA who went under the name builtlikeatank who said the same such things about Suter, and Garisson.
