gotta agree with this. i've seen semin completely dominate games and make ovie look like a bystander. his flaw is that his compete level is very inconsistent. imo, if he had sidney crosby or john tavares's determination to be great, he'd be right up there with if not surpassing sid and ovie. alas, the same type of statement can be said of many players over the years.
