Semin and Doan produce at similar offensive levels. Granted Semin had more support and better offensive teammates, so his numbers "look" a tad better. In my books, with similar ice time, they would both produce at the same rate in Montreal, namely 50-60pts.

However.....

Doan will make you accountable for your actions on the ice, both his own teammates and the opposition. He'll play through injuries and sacrifice his body to win.

Semin does not like to be held accountable for his actions on the ice, either from his own teammates or opposition. He won't play through injuries or sacrifice anything to win.

Rightly or wrongly, Semin has been labled both a locker room cancer and a coach killer. No team is interested in signing him right now for more than one year, until "they get to know him better", to steal a quote from Jim Rutherford.

Doan would benefit our organization in so many more ways than Semin could ever hope to. Therrien would play Shane to death, while Semin would be more likely to return to Russia than play for such a demanding coach.
