You must have the Semin man love going on. This guy is the most inconsistent player on the team. Is there a reason why Russia didn't want him playing on the team and ever hockey writer is calling him out, I think so. Put the Semin man love aside and see the real picture.
First of all I was talking about the playoffs. As for the regular season, he was a casualty of the same problems that plagued the rest of the team. For his career he is an over a point per game guy, I wouldn't toss him out based on one below par season that hit everyone on the team. Last postseason while he wasn't getting points he was our most dangerous forward. If I remember correctly he may have led all forwards in SOG. I wouldn't call that disappearing.

For the record I am not Russian and don't have a man crush on Semin. I have no particular bias in his favor. Unless we get a hell of a return on a trade, I would prefer to see how he (and others) perform with systematic tweaks.
