    Does this have any implications for other Russian players coming over?

    I don't see why it should ...... Semin was signed when there was a valid IIHF Transfer Agreement between the Russian Federation and the NHL (under the old CBA).

    I don't think Semin was given a "new" contract so much as the fines, suspensions, and other items were removed from his current contract --- notice the press release says an "agreement" was reached, not that a contract was signed (then again, I might be just picking a nit).

    Regardless, this is very good news for the Capitals.

    Good for the Caps AND the NHL.
