I like the Blackwood pick. Us possibly letting go of Maxime Clermont shows that our lack of (promising) depth in goaltending may be coming sooner than later. As of now, we have 3 goaltenders signed this year across both NHL/AHL teams. I'd classify that as a "need" even if it will really only come to true fruition on the big team in 5 or so years.

Semin for a max of $4m, for a max of 3 years. That'd be my take it or leave it offer. We'll see in the next few days or weeks how doable that is. Could go either way, the market for Semin after the year he just had could go a mil or a year or two higher (depending on the foolishness of the GM) or could be about that. We'll see. But at that contract, he'd be worth it, and in a position we sorely need depth in (depth of any kind; even "not what he used to be" depth). We really don't have too many options at RW, so it wouldn't be taking away any rookies' spots, unless Matteau or Boucher were thinking of switching wings.

Nevermind, in the last hour of reporting, there is a development:

Royal Canadian Mounted Police ARE investigating Mike Richards. However, no charges filed yet.

This is certainly strange. If it were drug possession/law enforcement related, we likely would've gotten details by now. No athlete has a brush-in with the law without that information being made public; I mean, it's public information. Even a drug incident or overdose/hospital stay leads to some rumors getting out. I can't really imagine what went wrong here, such a strange situation.

 

Canadian law enforcement has even confirmed to hockey media that no charges have been filed on Richards. So so weird.
