The stuff about his effort, etc., is 90 percent B.S.--fueled by TSN's anti-Russian bias and a few disgruntled former players.
Semin is one of the best defensive players in the entire league. Yes, I do watch, and I see with my own eyes. Semin is a lazy player.

When he's on his game he's a top 5 player in the league. Problem is, he just doesn't try.

But believe that the big bad TSN guys are the ones spreading rumours.

Previous coach, previous team mates, media and insiders all calling him lazy. Something is wrong somewhere.
