And it should be. One rotten apple spoils the bunch. You can see the ebbs and flows of the Capitals organization with Semin there. You can also see how AO's personality dictates how that locker room is. You don't need that, regardless of how talented a player is. Is and unnecessary headache.

Let's use Semin as an example for Grigorenko...he scores 30-40 goals a year, but is he helping the team really when members of the team come out, on the record, and state how he's just a completely **** teammate?

I loved Grigorenko's skill, and I'd be completely lying if I didn't think that it'd be awesome watching him here. When I think about drafting him rationally though, it makes less and less sense. Starting with the fact that he'd have to switch positions here, and we know how people feel about a center being moved to wing around these parts.
