I don't care what country Ovechkin comes from. If anything, I'd love to have Semin on the team, and I do believe Semin has been badly typecasted as the stupid "lazy Russian" stereotype.
It's just that I've seen Ovechkin when he was both successful and when he was struggling; and oh my god, he's not pretty when he is struggling. He has a hard time paying attention to a disciplined game plan. Plus, he gets rather predictable when he is frustrated; shoots the pucks blindly way too much, lacks mobility; waaaay too easy to mark.
