via Chuck Gormley of CSN Washington, “I’ve never really discussed that sort of thing, whether we’re going to sign someone or not,” Capitals general manager George McPhee said Saturday on the final day of development camp.
“I’d rather not start now. I know that’s not a great answer, but I’ll just stay neutral.”
Asked if he was surprised Semin, who in seven seasons recorded 197 goals and 409 points in 469 games for the Capitals, is still available, McPhee replied, “Not necessarily. It would have to be the right fit for him.”
Semin reportedly has received interest from the Penguins and Hurricanes but apparently is holding out for a two-year deal in the $10 million range.
