Free agent Alexander Semin is still available and with each passing day his value on the open market continues to decline.

So, would the Capitals be interested in re-signing the 28-year-old winger?

Ive never really discussed that sort of thing, whether were going to sign someone or not, Capitals general manager George McPhee said Saturday on the final day of development camp.

Id rather not start now. I know thats not a great answer, but Ill 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.

The Capitals have more than 16 million in cap space, but should they go down that same road again? Your thoughts? Comment below.
