That sentiment reached Carolina Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford, but while he's expressed interest in Semin's services, he's also being cautious. He told Chip Alexander of the News and Observer earlier this month that the Hurricanes would be interested in Semin on a short contract, adding, "We wouldn't want to get locked in to anything, because we've all heard the stories about him."
Rutherford reiterated his interest on Friday during the team's FunFest, saying he's spoken with Semin's agent in the past week several times.
