If this is to be beleived (and I see no reason why not) then this just looks like to be a stupid move by a coach that's desperate to be preceived as a hard-ass disciplinarian....stupid.

Semin is a free spirit. For better or for worse, he'll never be a guy who takes orders well. Some people get along well with free spirit types (when they are not too out of control) and other just can't stand them. Some people require a tight routine.

First of all, Semin has a history of being immature, uncoachable and lazy at times. So I don't give him the benefit of the doubt. Second, playing on your country's team is an honor. Wouldn't one make damn sure that they are there on time, even if it meant getting there a day or two ahead of time?

We've already discussed how this is no big deal.

No but I do remember when he ate babies, hijacked airplanes, and smuggled illegal aliens across the border to steal good ol' american jobs in Texas and California. Also, he caused global warming.

Semin's picture is on Al Gore's deleted Powerpoint slides.

You left out one thing he is clearly to blame for. This whole escort service scandal going around Washington has Semin all over it.

Semin could really benefit from a stable, hard-working and respected veteran like Alexei Yashin. Make it happen McPhee.

Does the fact that I laughed at that make me a bad person?

Not defending Semin here...but if you post something like this, you should be able to back it up, correct? So, where did you hear this?

A name and a date would be appreciated...

i don't even need a name and a date. how about a quote? or a general recollection of what was said? although it wouldn't be the internet without woefully unsubstantiated generalizations.

semin is a wicked talented kid who a) gets bad advice and/or 2) makes stupid choices. as long as he do what he do here, and it's not obviously screwing things up (i.e. people calling him out in the press, making him sit in the corner and putting johnny in the middle of the bench, etc.), i don't give a crap. frankly, it looks like about 40% semin being dumb and 60% the coach wanting to make a point. meh...

provide a link or it's libel

12) Libel: Any posts libeling players, prospects, or hockey personnel. It's not acceptable to post that you heard Player X has a drinking/drug/sex/personal problem from a "good" source. A link to a credible media source must be posted to support such claims. Other forums and personal websites are not credible.

He should be sued for $65 million, just like the cleaners who lost the judge's pants

Big difference in stating your opinion based on observation versus saying you heard it first hand...
