Alex Semin

With Ovechkin moved to the other wing, am I the only one who misses him? We could have a legit line now. Watching him play tonight made me think of what could have been.

Not really

Semin would not play on the left in Oates system anyway. He's a right handed shot.

I just miss Sasha in general. Dreading him scoring on us on Thursday. To be honest OP, Sasha has played RW for Carolina the entire time he has been there (Tlusty - Staal - Semin) but we would have a legit line for him now, instead of being played with plugs like Chimera.

Johansson - Backstrom - Ovechkin
Erat - Grabovski - Semin

I wish, I wish.

A wish yes but we wouldn't be able to afford that.

Ditch Brouwer and one of Erat or Laich, and we would. Would also have the space to fit Perreault, while we're at it.

Johansson - Backstrom - Ovechkin
Erat/Laich - Grabovski - Semin
Chimera - Perreault - Ward
Fehr - Latta - Wilson

I don't actively miss him, but I'd be lying if I didn't think about what Oates could have done to work with the guy every time one of those big Oates articles was posted online. I'd hazard a guess and say that if any coach could have made Semin feel like he was worth talking to and working with, we have our guy right now. Guy could be even more lethal than he already was.

Then ditch Ward when we get Kuzya

Kuznetsov - Backstrom - Ovechkin
Johansson - Grabovski - Semin
Laich - Perrault - Fehr
Chimera - Latta - Wilson

One thing you can say about Semin: He produced offense at even strength, regardless of his linemates. The team sure misses that now.

That Brooks Laich contract has screwed so many good things up in the big scheme of things.

Probably less whining than is currently happening regarding the confusing management of lines and awful decisions made my Mcphee really starting to show.
