Although this is all just wishful thinking.
Hey, can't complain about hoping for the best.
Is there really so much of an attitude problem for Semin though? Just seems that the root came from him not getting enough pressure by the coaching staff to improve/produce even more than he can and thus losing interest at times.

Still though...big leap for Neimisz.
