I would love to wake up tomorrow and see that Semin had signed an extension. But it's kind of tricky since where a budget team. Does putting more money towards Semin mean that we cant go after a guy like Marc Staal a few years down the line?
Arguably, the best top line in hockey right now,
Or hoarding aal the Staal's?
You're right though, lets just hold out hope for Marc when his contract is up. While were at it lets sign the sister and the dad too we can even change our names to the Carolina Hurristaals.
Or, we could, you know, lock up two allstar to lines, spend all the ammo we can to find some defense now, and have a team that can compete year in and year out.
And I'm tired of hearing about Semin having motivation issues, look at Washington, that whole team has motivation issues. He was right for wanting out and now he's in prime position to get rewarded handsomely for it.
