I've read a lot of discussion about us possibly pursuing semin. The general consensus seems to be that people would want him here (absent landing Ryan or Parise). While the offensive skillset is undeniable it seems like a lot of the other issues (work ethic, motivation, etc.) would be counterproductive to the direction most people around here want the team to go, ie. players with an undeniable work ethic and desire to win. Obviously we need offense wherever we can get it but while Derek Roy is more offensively gifted than Ott, I think we're all happy with the trade. Just seems to me that bringing in a player like Semin might get us more goals but hurt us in other areas. Just interested in what others think, I'll admit a lot of what I know about him is based on the "slacker" reputation.
