Semin's next contract

After reading the discussion about Nicky's next deal it became apparent that the Capitals are going to be in a bit of a "cap quandry" after next season. Semin, Backstrom, and Flash all up for Restricted Free Agency and all will be getting rather large contracts if they continue on the same development curve. Semin will make $5M next season and has played only one full season, 06-07, but is averaging 1.4ppg so far this year in 26 games played. How much do you give to an oft injured "potential" superstar? He has also shown a noticable unwillingness/inability to learn give interviews in English and has complained about living in the US, does he go back to Russia?
