While it initially appeared that the Washington Capitals are done with winger Alexander Semin, his agent, Mark Gandler, says that the Capitals have been very aggressive in trying to resign the forward.
Semin's agent Mark Gandler tells SovSport "Washington is constantly offering us to come back." #Caps— Dmitry Chesnokov (@dchesnokov) July 19, 2012
Semin scored 54 points, 21 goals during the 2011-12 regular season and scored an additional three goals in the playoffs. Semin has been criticized quite a bit for his enigmatic play while with the Capitals given how productive he can be.
