Like TDMM said Almo was the elite player when he wanted to be but if it wasn't a contract year he would often mail in the whole season too.

He was in fact very much like Semin who could be world class for a stretch, even a season, and then be pretty average, considering his skill set for large stretches and whole seasons.
