A lot of players are inconsistent. He's not a superstar, but some people believed he was after his two big seasons. Frankly, I believed many of the same things about Semin until I watched him on a regular basis living here in a Caps home market. The guy works. I think he struggles with confidence from time to time and becomes overly reliant on his shot tool, which is excellent but shooting% comes and goes. I think the concern that he'd be a negative influence on other players is unfounded.
