I'd be all about brining Semin in as opposed to St. Louis.  Our forward lineup looks a lot better with a Semin in there than a Palmieri, that's for sure.  

 

I see nothing wrong with both on one year deals.

If Boyes was bought out I wouldn't mind seeing if we could sign him on the cheap.

 

He's got one year left and was waived. If we get Boyes, they'd just pick him off the waiver wire.

Semin was placed on waivers with the intent to buyout his contract.

I would love to take him on with a 1 year/1.5 million "show me" deal. Best case senerio he becomes the first line winger we need and rebounds tremendously. Worst case? One year, we don't re-sign him or trade him midseason

 

You would love to, but there is no way he's going to sign for that little. If he gets offers like that, he goes to Russia.

 

The only way we get him on a one year deal is with money. I honestly see no problem giving Semin 1 year at 4-5M per. We're not going to be anywhere near the cap this year. Worst case scenario he's sh!t and gone a year from now. Best case he produces and we re-sign him at a fair deal or some playoff team gives us a nice return for him at the deadline. The money is not the problem for us with a guy like Semin, we can outbid someone easily for a one year deal, but we dont want to get locked into a lengthy deal with him.

 

There are very few guys I would even consider more than 1 year for from this crop. One guy also waived today I wouldnt mind kicking the tires on is Cody Hodgson, but obviously not at his current term.

Not that i wanna break the bank for him.. But what's wrong with this player ? 

 

His stats are inflated. More than half of his scoring came on lines centered by Getzlaf or Kesler. He's not likely to replicate that here. He could, but the terms he's going to get are a turnoff. He is legitimately David Clarkson 2.0.

I know they won't do it but we should offer sheet Brandon Saad

 

No we shouldnt. How much do you think we should offer him? They'll match almost anything, and anything they won't match we don't want to pay the compensation.

Besides, anything over 3.3M and below 8.4M rules us out because we don't own our 3rd anymore. We have 2, but they are from other teams.

 

Brandon Saad is a good player on a stacked team. He's not worth the cost. They'll match anything reasonable espc if they trade Sharp.
