So this is how one team views Semin. I'm going to reserve judgement until the middle of the season, but I'm pretty excited. Pure talent trumps inferior talent + effort most of the time. Especially if there are two major stars already on the roster (Staals).
So why didn't he sign in Russia and get paid more?
