He just went out there and created scoring chances to give his team a chance to win during their roughest stretch of the season.

And during both intermissions on the Canes feed, he gave an interview. In English.

I have yet to hear a Canes fan express the slightest regret about signing him. He's happy here and we're happy to have him. If people feel the need to continue to boo him and go to the media with trash talk and slag him on Internet message boards, that says a whole lot more about those people than it does about Semin.
Backstrom and Rebeiro were much better than Semin last night, get real.
