LOL. You keep telling yourself that and then ask yourself why the Caps are dying to get rid of him every year and it's not the money.
Ask yourself why they keep resigning him if they're so anxious to trade or "get rid of him" ? I mean he is a UFA and all. Everything you have said is either completely wrong (he's bad defensively) or unsubstantiated rumor (CAPS trying to trade him).
I've seen a ton of Capital games. Semin is awful defensively. There is a reason the Capitals have been trying to trade him for 3 years. It's sure not because of his offense.
According to your belief, the Craps are trying to constantly trade a great defensive player who averages over a point per game. Yeah. That's what all teams are trying to do. Trade players like that.
You can watch all the caps games you want...doesnt mean you actually know what your talking about. I think calling them the crapitals made you lose any argument you may have. I also take by your username your a rangers fan? Semin is the reason you got bounced in round one.
how would picking Semin help the preds salary troubles? the reason they might get rid of one of Rinne, Sutter or Weber is too high a price tag so why would they wanna sign Semin for most likely equal or more money then Rinne will get? No chance from Nash and by the sounds of it Washington isnt interested either.
Dunno about it. Rinne is nice and all, but his playoff numbers have been less impressive than Varlamov's, who we had no problem shipping out for total futures. Even if he is an upgrade over Vokoun for the upcoming season (and keep in mind that goalies fluctuate like crazy, hell Thomas went from Vezina to Rask's backup in a year and Bryzgalov crapped himself in the playoffs after being borderline elite last year), it's not worth our top 6 being Ovechkin-Backstorm-Knuble Laich-Johansson-Brouwer. The caps are literally the worst team to shop Rinne too for substantial return aside from NYR, CAR, PHI, BUF, BOS, LA and VAN
