Free Agent Friend-zy

9:18 PM

(I live in Russia)

Looks like Semin is moving on.  I can't say I'm surprised, or that I'm sad to see him go.  A fun player to watch, but too lazy to make a serious impact.

But we still need a top 6 winger.  If we let Semin walk, then we can't replace him with a poor man's Semin and expect to improve.  Sorry, PA, we're just not that into you.

Alex Ponikarovsky is an interesting option.  He's big, speaks Russian (hey, you gotta throw Ovechkin a bone), and should come relatively cheap (he earned $1.5 million last year).

Peter Mueller is another one.  Big, young, but coming off of a serious concussion problem.  He could be a nice fit on the top line wing.

Dustin Penner is a mixed bag.  He has two Cups, but he's lazy.  Though, he's huge, and will go into corners.  Hey, it's worth a shot, right?

12:10 AM UPDATE:

Poni signed with Winnipeg, and Penner re-signed in LA.  Sweet.
