Do you know what drives me crazy about the poor opinions about Semin? It

Sounds remarkably similar to what I used to hear about Brett Hull! These

are the facts: The only thing that shakes a goalie in the NHL playoffs is

the puck behind him. We were physically outplayed in the playoffs

but not because we were not big enough. It was because our size did

nothing to put the puck in the net. I remember entire series where a goal

scorer could steal the show based on talent alone. We don't have anyone

who in basketball terms can "Create his own shot". Semin has this type

of talent and by the way no one ever suggested he was to be a mentor

for tank. I just said it would be nice to have another Russian player on

team.
