You can look the other way when a guy is a defensive liability but is still putting up 40 goals. However, in this case, it's about attitude and his actions on the ice -- i.e. the lazy penalties, poor decision making, and general lack of intensity on many nights.
Going back to my earlier point about being friends with AO, I sometimes wonder what Semin would do on another team where he could be "the guy." Would he excel or would he fold? You never know what you might get with a guy like him; For better or for worse.
Yes I know Semin isn't a great example, I did clarify I think he's a cancer, I don't want a guy with an attitude like that anywhere near the locker room, which is why I said in my post I'm not defending him, it just felt like a good time to make my point because I just got sick of seeing people say "NO NO NO he can't play defense, he's a floater!" every time someone makes a proposal to bring a top-6 winger here
