Not so sure on the playing styles of shaniban and sands, but it seems to me that Skinner is actually the closest we've had in recent years to resemble Semin's talent.

Dangles opponents: check
Quick, accurate shot: check
*****ing and moaning: check
Defensive liability: check

While Semin doesn't get all the credit deserved, I for one, was surprised at his interest in playin the PK. Yeah, he wanted more defensive responsibility, but it seems as though 1st line minutes aren't enough. That's fine by me, he just might be able to earn that contract through his special teams play as well. Seeing him box play (PK in Finnish) will likely send him back to the 2nd pp unit, where I am almost certain he'll get to play on his natural side.
