Semin gets paid for his dangling and passing as well, although to be sure his shot is his bread and butter.

And you're right, it's fair to say that Kuznetsov's skillset is different than Semin's (I like the mention of Malkin earlier in the thread), I was just looking for a way to quickly compare his upside to a current Cap. He's not Ovechkin, he's not going to dominate a game physically the way Ovechkin can, but he might turn into a guy that can control the game through his skills. With Semin those skills are slanted more heavily towards his shot, with Kuznetsov it'll probably end up slanting more heavily towards his dangling/skating.
