I think a lot of that has to do with the make up. You cant keep adding guys with high skill and little heart or grit. At some point it only hurts the team. I feel like Semin is just not a good fit for the caps. he is more of what we have and not what we need. If Semin stays the Laich has to go.
And for the Semin fans. Yes he is the best player on the ice one out of every five games. And he does back check hard a lot of the time. But like Mike Green. You could never count on him for a 20+ game cup run.
I look at it like fantasy baseball. Give me a team of guys that will give me 20 points a week. And I will win every league. Give me a team of guys like Semin. And may lead the league in points and still Finnish in 3rd place. And be knocked out in the second round.
You look at Semin's playoff numbers and that look good. You look close and see that most of his points came in bunches. And he was no were to be found a lot of the time.
