Point is, Semin has had no trouble producing as a 2nd or 3rd option. He has usually been fine playing as the best player in a 2nd line or the 2nd best player on a 1st line.
And it is reported Semin wants to play in Pitts where he certainly will not be the top dog or 2nd top dog etc.....Its CRAZY some of the nonsense that gets spewed about some players by the media etc...Love to have Semin here in Philly, he is entertaining as heck on the ice......And that's what fills the seats !
