2 points in 4 games.

It's not Semin's fault they lost that series. If you have to blame a single forward instead of the whole team? It's Backstrom, no question.

It's fine to criticize Semin for outside of the scoresheet issues but when he had the puck in the Rangers zone last year, we all cringed with apprehension. Wouldn't it be nice if the Rangers had a player who could do that to the opposition?
Exactly. I don't care if it's Semin or someone else, but we need that dynamic on our team past Gaborik (when he's 40 goal scorer Gaborik.)
