I know. When he doesn't show up half the games or not compete, don't complain. He is top 5/10 pure talent in the league and one of the best shots in the league. But he plays the game for the wrong reason (money) and not to win."
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).
I hope he plays for money this year. Last chance for a 5 year deal.
