"I'm very happy to sign here with this organization, this team," Semin said after Tuesday's morning skate at PNC Arena. "I like the Carolina fans, this city, everything. I like playing here."
What makes the Canes a good fit for him?
"I like playing here. Good team for me," he said. "It's a new life.
Sounds good to me. Can't bring myself to start worrying about cap space etc...not my job. Now that he's got some security maybe that'll shake the goal-scoring yips too.

Poor guy, everyone outside D.C. knows how screwed-up that place is for anything past visiting the Smithsonian. At least he's around normal people now.

I am surprised that they came to a deal so soon after what both he and JR said earlier. We don't know what goes on behind the scenes and why but something in the timing seems a little off to me. That said, he did take a cut (people should remember that. However, the salaries on this team do seem to be a little out of whack) but Carolina seems like the perfect place for Alex. Low key, nice place to live and this would apparently confirm that he and the other players like eachother and are getting along just fine. Good deal all the way around. He should be wearing an "A" IMO. I don't think his English is a hinderance. Perhaps he doesn't want it.

Alex: "Hey, I don't want to be traded at the deadline."

JR: "Ok, we can extend you"

Boom.

Do we know if there is a NTC or not?

The previous time I checked capgeek, it said they didn't have the details of the contract yet. Now when I check it, that message is gone away and there still isn't any NTC/NMC clause attached. So I would assume no, he doesn't have one.

He's due to break out but is sure being closely checked. Even so, I'm confident he will really turn it up a notch or two even more than he has and find a way to elude those assigned to check him.

No doubt Carolina fits Alexs' style. To me, he took a cut and could have gotten another mil. or two from some big market outfit. It was obviously worth it to him to stay here. And, people were saying that he was in it only for the money . So much BS and misconception about the guy that he has certainly dispelled now.

Anyhow, live in the big cities of Pittsburgh or New York? Ugh!!! Carolina is sooo much nicer. As much as I think Muller has not been up to the task lately, I have always been willing to continue to give him time to figure this all out. I hope he does and they take off again just in time for the playoffs. I have a feeling that that will happen. Fingers crossed!

he's been hanging out with Skinner too much. No wonder Eric had a big game yesterday, he clearly can't take being upstaged.

some random info. he is still a point/game + player (34 points in 33 games) and is currently on a 2 game goal/point streak. 6 of his 10 goals have come in March.
