I could buy that. You could say the Cans have put Semin in a better situation to succeed. He spent most of his ice time in DC without a skilled C. GMGM had years to find him a someone to get him the puck and never did. Semin did have some great nights with the SOB line. But for the most part he was with lesser players.
For what its worth I would take Ribs over Semin if I had to pick.
I agree, but I would've loved to see what they could have done together.
