Semin has messed Ovechkin up by being quiet and skeptical? Wait till Ribeiro teaches him to womanize like a pro.
Of course, I don't think he's gonna kill this team with fire, but that's pretty much the exact same level of analysis Semin has been getting.
If you're gonna go character his offseason moves are idiotic. If you're gonna go skill his offseason moves are idiotic as well.
I'm well aware of Ribeiro's record. That's why I brought it up. A reasonable inference is that Semin's influence on the team is even worse.
And maybe, when Ribeiro is acting like an idiot, the captain won't be conflicted about calling out his best friend.
