- Semin was 2nd on their free agency list behind Parise
- If it works out here, hopes it'll be a long-term relationship
- The team is at an all-time high with season ticket holders.
That last statement is a godsend, especially considering the talk at the beginning of last year. I couldn't tell you how many times I overheard people stating they wouldn't renew their tickets this year because of the way the team started under Maurice.
