I dont think its this simple. On a nightly basis Tlusty was far more likely to go into dirty areas. He scored alot of goals in places that Semin and Staal rarely visit. That wont change next season. But i do agree that Semin may shoot more now that he is comfortable. However its also possible that Semin is entirely satified with feeding Staal and Tlusty. I dont know the actual stats but my guess is a majority of Semins assists were primaries. And honestly he seems comfortable setting up others in a way many talented wingers, with his kind of shot, arent.
