Alex Semin's agent, Mark Gandler: "No question, playing in Pittsburgh would be great. Alex would love to play with either Malkin or Crosby."

and then his agent finished by saying, "but both at the same time is just too much."

I think you should because we can't afford Nash and Doan is getting old. Plus you pair him up with Kovy on a line could be dominate

C'mon dude...for one, he's had much more productive seasons than that, and they weren't very long ago, and he still has talent. He's getting at least $6 million or so per year from someone. Brandon friggin' Dubinsky's making $4 million a year for the next three seasons.

Like I said, he's an interesting case, in that he could decide the long-term offers he gets might not be that great, so he maybe he rolls the dice, and instead of taking guaranteed money for 5-6 years, he signs something like a 2-year, $13 million deal, plays above the value of that deal, then gets a bigger long-term contract than he would right now.

Thing about that is, nobody knows what's happening in the next CBA. Contract term might be limited after this offseason anyway. Plus the market's just too goofy right now, I see him taking what he can get which will probably be more than anyone's comfortable with.

Eh. That's like asking someone if they want a bag full of cash.

I know this guy was brought up, but is "hockeyyinsiderr" credible? He tweeted this within the hour

On Semin. #Pens 4 year offer on the table still best he received so far. #CONFIRMED #RedWings and #NJDevils still interested. -- HockeyyInsiderr (@HockeyyInsiderr)

I'm not sure how many times the same sources have to get posted before people figure out who's credible and who isn't. The answer is no. The CAA security guard is more credible.

HockeyyInsiderr is another Єklund (2.3% accurate) and Incarcerated Bob fake. At least Incarcerated Bob is funny with some of his off the wall comments outside of his bs rumors.

These types of "sources" are horsesh!t. There should be some kind of a ban from posting anything that isn't from Dreger and McKenzie or from a guy like TG. Enough with the Єklund (2.3% accurate)/Incarcerated Bob/Hockey Insiderrrrr crap, I'm tired of reading garbage.

I imagine that there's still some grain of truth. Pens always end up being lucky bastards.

Why would Semin want to play with a silly Penguin on his sweater. He'd be much better off with Satan on his side!

Does anyone really care if we overspend a bit on Semin, just to have him as Parise 2.0, but actually a better person and player?

Question: if we sign Semin and after a year or two it's clearly not working out, can he be transferred to the KHL? Would we get out of having to pay him if that happens?

Word on the streets is that the Pens and Wings won't go above 4 years on Semin.

I heard it from this guy:

According to the Ottawa Sun the Semin sweepstakes is down to NJ and Detroit. Not sure how true it is but Ill trust a major newspaper over a twitter account anyday.

Strange the homeless guy in my previous post said he works for the Sun. Or maybe he said he works on the Sun.

Wow, Alexander Semin still can't speak almost any english. He doesn't even make an effort. I know it's difficult but he's been here for years now.

Could semin play the RW?

Kovy - Zajac - Semin could be intriguing.

Edit: Assuming Kovy shifts back over now that Zach is gone.

both of these are from this past season - clearly A-Train speaks well enough and while not so fluent, he makes a real effort. Semin couldn't give a fvck.

Semin being "lazy" about learning a foreign language is about as American as it gets.
