Semin definitely has created some good chances. Yeah he still gets muscled off the puck along the boards and he still need to know when he needs to dump it down the boards but right now I can't really see a reason why Cassidy should NOT play him.
I am only speculating but I think Cassidy was trying to avoid using Semin against the NHL elite and on the road. I don't think Cassidy wanted to throw Semin out in a offensive slump leaning on him to be the spark either.

I think they wanted to go slow
