Also, the WC is not played at nearly as high a skill level as the NHL playoffs, so Semin should be fine.
I mean waste in the term of he just played a very long season, he was also apart of the Olympic roster and finished the play-offs very poor. Why not just give him a rest and Russia bring younger players or players who were not in the Olympics?

How about let Lisin, Anisimov, Filatov or Shirokov go instead?

It is just my opinion but if I was in charge I would just give his spot to a younger guy.
