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?


Nope. We'd have to release him for the KHL to even make an offer. Theres a standing agreement between the leagues that we won't offer currently contracted KHL players contracts and vice versa. Im pretty sure (not positive) that if it didnt work out, the only way we could get rid of him is via waivers, but I assume the money would still count towards the cap.

IE Radulov was RFA after this season, the KHL signed him and Nashville didnt make him a qualifying offer.

Here is the article:

He wants to kill penalties and play in the last minute of games. He wants more ice time than the 16:47 he averaged last season the Capitals, his lowest since he was a rookie in 2003-04.

That agreement isn't worth sh!t. Especially if the NHL doesn't go to Sochi.

I'd be fine with this unless he's looking for a career contract. I'd rather have a higher cap hit than extra years at a lower salary.

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.


That's why I love the guy. He doesn't give a fvck. Haha.

"There are unconfirmed (!) reports that CSKA's offer to Semin stand at 3 years, $30 million. Pretty ridiculous money, if you ask me. "

https://twitter.com/...965392023797760

"Semin CSKA reports are published in RUS media, siting American sources. Whether they're factual or not, Semin clearly wants to sign here."

I believe "here" means NHL.

So the Russians are citing an American source about the Russian offer?

If he makes 10 million a year for "playing only 41 games", in essence he's getting paid double. It's a really lame joke.

Yup, ink a 2 or 3 year deal and worry about long term later if he works out.

I really envy LL's job. What fun this would be.

I really wish some news would come out. I cant stand all the bogus twitter rumours. This one was probably the best one ive seen.

Twitter is the worst thing in the world because it lets idiots have an opinion when they don't deserve to have one.

Yep. Before 2006, idiots around the world wandered around through life not having opinions because Twitter hadn't been invented yet.
