It's about time... we can put all the Russian rumors to rest... Alliteration aside, lets see what he can do next year
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.
Indeed it is.
Good for the Caps AND the NHL.
This kid is a dynao. He and Ovechkin will create MAGIC.
