No. This is wrong. If I dislike a Russian player, it's subconscious? No. I dislike Semin. He's not a player I want on the Sens.

I also dislike Nash at his salary. I also dislike a lot of players that are commonly accepted as "good." This has nothing to do with media chatter. It has everything to do with personal observations.
