I have no doubt Semin has a spotty work ethic. Too many people have said it as this stage, so you have to assume there is some truth to it, but when the guy is gone and your team sucks, just shut up. Carolina seems to be doing just fine with Semin on the team.

I think it's well known arround the NHL that Semin is taking some nights off . He never had a skill problem ,the problem is his work ethic . That said , i'm sure that if you put him in a room full of leaders and character guys he would probably think twice before taking a night off .. or they will remind him if he does take a "break".

Semin with the Avs , or someone like him ? Well the FO told us for many years that they want character guys with great work ethic . Personnaly i wouldnt say no to pure Skills once in a while , even if that means that this player will take a few nights off .
