Either way, I still believe Semin is the better fit for this team. Better long-range scorer and more consistently dangerous in the offensive zone.
When you have two other guys doing the bang and crash work, it's hard to be the third guy doing it. I think if you put him with guys like Richards and Gaborik, he can play that role pretty well. Just my opinion.
Semin would be the better fit if he didn't have the maturity level of a 16 year old. Undeniable talent, and the best wrist shot in the league, IMO, but it's a stretch to think that he can be "molded" at this point in his career.
