People used to say around Edmonton that the Oilers would often be playing 5 on 4 1/2 when Semenko was on the ice with Gretzky. Because he wasn't really doing anything other than roaming around the ice glaring at anyone that looked at Gretz funny.
I guess I had a different perspective because I saw Gretzky play in Quebec City and Semenko scored two goals and was the first star.
He wasn't a great player but in comparison to players like John Scott and SMac he looked decent.
And then you had enforcers like Bob Probert who could intimidate and still play hockey.
