I also look at Washington during Semin's time and other than maybe Laich and Knuble, this was a team that really lacked leadership that could provide guidance to guys like Semin, Ovechkin, Backstrom, Green, etc......Semin goes to the Flyers and he's insulated with strong leadership-types like Briere, Hartnell, Giroux, Schenn, Jagr, Talbot, Simmonds, Timonen, Coburn, Grossmann, etc.... A big difference in the environment in Philadelphia when compared to Washington.
