Really? I think you need to look up Semin's numbers because he isn't Zherdev 2.0. This whole thing about Semin being a poor defensive player and stuff is just crap that's made up. Over the past four seasons, he's been a +92, so he knows about the defensive side of the game. On top of it, the past four seasons, he's scored 123 goals, an average of just under 31 goals a season while playing on the second line. He's never had the benefit of playing with Backstrom. Give him a good centerman and he's good for 40 goals a year.

This whole Russian-bias is really silly and starting to get old. The guy is a gamer. His numbers match that of Parise and I'm sure that if Semin were a Canadian, there'd be no doubt he'd be getting a big contract from someone. I suggest to do some research about Semin, but I guess that as long as there's a general consensus he's a bad player, then it will continue to permeate through here. Too bad as well.
