Ovy is absolutely stinking up the joint, but he's the franchise, Semin isn't.

Your energy would be well directed if it was at the architect of this team instead of trying to deflect from Semin.
Semin could very well be gone after this year, people are more concerned with him receiving another 1 year deal than a underachieving player on a decade long one.

The reality with OV is his stick handling has worsened, he struggles to get a shot on net, the effort level is down, and with more of an emphasis on defense, he hasn't shown the competence to play in such a system.
