His good games are so far from his worse performances that you wouldn't even think it's the same player.

He's still young, tho, and lots of snipers seem to be inconsistent. I just hope it's not his attitude what causes this because that's hard to fix.
This has been the problem with the whole team. The first two games they looked solid and Armia was a big part of that. After that the team thought it was going to be easy and every player lacked pretty much everything (the game that you are talking about). Last week Armia played well just like to whole team, but just like the rest of the gang he couldn't make it count on the scoreboard. He sometimes tries to do too much by himself and it doesn't work, but that's just him as a player.

I know that there are still other flaws in his game, but I don't think there are any major attitude problems to be worried about.

The gap between peaks and valleys with him has to start closing at some point.
His peak has gotten better since he was drafted, but he still has that low valley where he's completely terrible and it looks like he's not even trying.

Well, this is now his third season as a regular.
He has to start differentiating himself somehow soon.
So far this season he has not been terrible other than in their third game about which I talked about already. To be honest he hasn't had a whole lot of terrible games in 2012.

Would say that a slightly more physical Semin is pretty darn accurate. Both own a great shot, soft hands in general and are dangerous in 1on1-situations. On the other hand both have a weak defencive game and are inconsistent.
