Semin is the most skilled player in the NHL.

I voted Semin, but I'd probably take Nash on my team. Semin's insanely skilled, but he seems injury prone.

If Nash had a better supporting cast, I think he would put up huge numbers.

Skilled or better player? Semin is more skilled (maybe the best toe drag in the nhl), but Nash has all you could ask for as a game breaking forward.

The OP clearly asks who is the more SKILLED player, not the better player.

He is definitely up there, but despite his lack of will and/or ability to use it, Alex Kovalev is on par with or above Semin.

More important than skill is durability. Nash is twice as durable.

Then factor size. Nash is huge. And he uses his size. Semin? Nope.


Semin is a skilled drummer. Nice shot. Decent moves. But he's pretty much a perimeter player riding on Ovechkin's coat tails. I wonder what team he's going to rob next season.
