Since I have seen this topic discussed often lately and since Semin and Backstrom are in contract years, I thought I would pose the question. Backstrom is in the final year of his three year entry-level deal while Semin is in the final year of a two year extension in which he is making five million dollars this year according to nhlnumbers.com. The Caps may not be able to afford both of them next year. So, put yourself in GMGM's shoes and make the choice yourself.
If you could only keep one, who would you keep?
