Alexander Semin signed a one year deal with Washington today.
It is worth $6.7 million. So I guess he's not getting dealt THIS year!
And all I can say is, this rules

What are your thoughts on this? Good, bad?

Great for Washington - what a coup to sign a player of his worth/value for only a one year deal! Puts the Caps in a great position to deal him in the summer or next year if dissatisified, or re-sign him at a lower price when he has a so-so beginning to the season next year.

I'm surprised Semin and his agent went for it . . . I guess he really does care about winning the cup.

Maybe the Caps want to see if he will show up in the playoffs where his numbers have dramatically been off so far. I think if Semin lights it up in the post season, a longer deal may be offered?

It's interesting to see him sign another 1 year deal. It was around this time last year that he signed a 1 year, $6 million contract with the Caps. Not often you see a player of his stature, at his age, opt for a 1 year deal.

maybe he's pulling a Hossa? take the one year deal, go on a good playoff run then next year cash in with a mega 12 yr. deal extension.

of course, he needs a good playoff run in order to make that happen...........

Does anyone know when Semin will return from this hip injury he has? He isn't helping my pool team very much.

Bring back the Jets!
