08:22 AM ET 07.09 | Now that things have settled down with Zach Parise and Ryan Suter speculation, the hockey world turns its attention to the next tier of free agents. All along we knew that the KHL would be a threat for [Alexander Semin's] services and while Semin's American agent has maintained throughout that his agent wants to stay in the NHL, it isn't deterring KHL teams like CKSA Moscow. ... [Even after recently signing Alexander Radulov,] CSKA still has plenty of money burning a whole in its pocket and is reportedly eyeing Semin, too. This from U.S.-based Slava Malamud of Sport-Express. "There are unconfirmed (!) reports that CSKA's offer to Semin stand at 3 years, $30 million. Pretty ridiculous money, if you ask me. #Caps"

$10 million a year for Semin? That's sounds like an awfully generous fertility clinic to me.

And to think, college students are glad to get $50 for beer money

$10,000,000 divided by $50.00 = one really sore ****.

Ask Jagr what a Tupolev is. He'll tell you it's a flying coffin.

Semin is usually preceeded by Love me tender anyway, isn't it?

Are we sure that contract offer wasn't in rubles?

July 9, 2012  10:29 AM ET

Ahhhh..............funny. I think I predicted this correctly. I don't think any NHL team is stupid enough to try to give this guy millions and expect a dedicated effort night after night. If this report is true (big if), sign the contract before they have a sudden attack of good sense Alex.

That's correct if you're from the south or named Martin.
