Alexander Semin interview with Sovietsky Sport

DM: Do you feel at home in Carolina? You are already playing your best hockey here and the fans love you?

AS: As for the future, let’s finish this season and play great hockey. It always feels great when fans acknowledge you. Their support brings positive emotions, adrenaline rush and helps to move forward.

Man, I really hope we sign him to a multi-year deal.

DM: Is fishing really your biggest hobby?

AS: Yes. Before I moved to the U.S., my dad and I would spend almost every day fishing. I don’t have much time now and the weather wasn’t cooperating so far, but it’d be nice to find a day and spend it on the water again.

Not really much he can say...

"No, the fans suck. I hate it here and I can't wait to sign in Columbus."

DM: How did the team greet you?

AS: I might have felt a little nervous the very first day, but then all the guys were very supportive and I haven’t had problems since. I like it here. All the guys are good. The team is great and the coaching staff is awesome.

I think that is a great sign, sounds like he is focused on playing, and not worrying about the contract.

We need to find out what kind of fishing he likes, then promote the great local fishing opportunities available around NC.

I think he does really love it here. He is from a small town in Russia and I think he likes that way of life...Let's just hope we can keep him as he has been nothing short of amazing. So much so, that I forget Jordan Staal is on the team.

I don't get all these people saying "Sign Semin now!" Well, I do, but just doesn't seem logical at this point in my opinion. I think JR is going to do this smartly and wait till the end of the season instead of possibly throwing him off his game with all this contract distraction. Let the man do his thing and fire that laser.

I just think he really is going to push our offer limits, but who could blame him... I think he's got a tough agent too doesn't he?

Dmitry Manakhov: Could you talk about your arrival? You moved from a capital city to a rather provincial town?

Alexander Semin: It wasn’t a problem for me. It is not my first year in the NHL. Besides, they have everything I need here for living, social life. It’s really the same. Washington is a bit bigger, Raleigh is a bit smaller, but the shops and the restaurants are the same. My girlfriend found Russian stores in the area. We are settled and my mom will come to visit soon.
The girlfriend found some Russian stores, she's sold. Plus every time I see her she looks happy. Most of the wives/girlfriends don't even smile, but she does. And it's all about keeping the woman happy, right

The comments about fishing remind me of that great cinematic masterpiece, The Hunt for Red October

Good interview Dmitry.

Honestly didn't even know we had Russian stores in this area, shows how much I get out. Not sure if that's actually funny or sad.

You'd be surprised, Dave. When I took my comparative legal systems class in grad school, our prof required that for our final presentations we bring in food from the country that our final presentation was on. One of the guys in my class had, IIRC, Serbia or Bosnia, and was successful in finding a Balkan grocery in Cary somewhere. If we've got Ethiopian and Czech restaurants and Balkan groceries, I wouldn't be surprised a bit by a Russian store.

Most likely he will, though I have some glimmer of home from his playing for free during the lockout. He doesn't sound like a guy who is completely mercenary, so maybe he will sit down and think about what that extra $1-2m could mean in terms of making the team more successful.

One of the things that really surprised me about the Triangle when I first moved here was the amount of ethnic diversity. Not just your standard Southern white/black/Hispanic diversity, but also the number of people from Europe and Asia, and how developed those communities have become in a relatively short period of time. There are much bigger cities than Raleigh that don't have a full-scale Indian grocery store or a large Asian fresh market.

The one in Cary has a legitimately GOOD Chinese restaurant in there. Coming from Boston it's a real task for me to call many Chinese places good as well so that's saying something.

To steer this slightly back on topic (before I give a Chinese recommendation to Dave) this is one of the reasons why I find Belanger's alleged whining about disliking Raleigh because he was not able to find a French-speaking community BS. It's certainly there and I've met more French natives here than I'd have imagined.
