08:24 AM ET 07.11 | Among the free agents Dan Bylsma was willing to talk about Tuesday, along with Shane Doan, was mercurial sniper Alexander Semin, who has not re-signed with Washington. Of the Capitals forward, he said, "Alexander Semin has scored 40 goals in this league and is a dangerous player." ... He has been criticized for inconsistency, and there also has been some bad blood with the Penguins. In a 2008 interview with a Russian reporter, Semin asked, "What's so special about [Crosby]?" After a Feb. 7, 2011, game at Verizon Center, Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik said Semin embellished to draw a high-sticking penalty, called Semin "a baby" and added, "I've got zero respect for the kid." Bylsma dismissed those things as being part of a rivalry.

"Pens getting closer to Semin?"

Does that mean they are about to blow the team up?

If they do sign him he'll soon realize what is so special. I'm sure he puts up at least 40 goals playing with Crosby.

It's getting more difficult to disseminate fact from fiction as to where he'll end up.

Agreed. Let him skip to the KHL. Don't let him mess with Malkin's work ethic.

Nobody wants Semin on the pens. Or the pencils either for that matter.

No. He is a FA

Believe me.......................he ain't free. Strange guy. As I've pointed out before no one in the league has more talent and he can be absolutely unbelievable during the 25% of his time on the ice when he decides to put forth effort. The rest of the time he's invisible.

That's why i do not understand the way so many writers and talking heads on radio say " he has been a 40 goal scorer' ??? Yes he was. He did it once. I as a GM would be looking at him as a "project" and offer funds based on a 30 - 35 goal scorer. Pay him for what he is , not what he was once.
