<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>DroverD2</b></div><div>This is why capfriendly sucks. People undervalue rookies etc. Then again people don't exactly look at them and think how they would develop with the team.

And the comment above they're all waiver exempt.

Semyonov and Teemu easily gets a 3rd / 4th in Ottawa case tbh since it be a early 4th and to any team if they look at them and think they could fit in their system. And hutch for a low pick also a no brainer if your in need of goalies.</div></div>

Bro Semyonov and Kivihalme aren't prospects. They're both 26, that's not a developing prospect, that's a a grown man with like a decade of Pro hockey experience. They are what they are.

Kivihalme probably isn't even an injury call up. He can provide value on an AHL team, but you probably aren't comfortable with him even in your press box.

Semyonov might be an NHL player, but again he's not more than a depth guy. The whole reason he was signed in the first place was on the hope that maybe play on the 4th line and add value on the PK.

I don't know what it is with Leaf fans, but they get these KHL FA types every year, and every year the fan base on here falls into two categories; its either "this UFA who picked TOR is gonna be totally valuable trade chip immediately" or its "this KHLer with no high end skillset of any kind is gonna be the difference maker. It's the same thing every year, whether it's Mikko "PP Savior" Lehtonen, Alex "Tavares' Winger Barabanov or Igor "top 4 RD" Ozhiganov.

Also as a final point, if your big argument for their value "they're waiver exempt" then you know they aren't worth a pick in the top 3 rounds. Nobody is trading a 3rd for guys because "you won't lose them when they clearly don't make the team".
