If Kovalchuk can change...Semin can change.
Get him here Kenny!!!
Semin isn't captain, and plays around Ovechkin, Backstrom, Green.
Kovalchuk was the captain of the Thrashers, and all the responsibility fell into his lap because he had next to no talent around him.
These are two completely different scenarios, Semin doesn't carry a heavy workload like Kovie was expected to in ATL. Kovalchuk actually gives a damn about playing well for his team also, Semin floats around collecting that massive overpay of a contract.
Complete disaster of a signing if we bring Semin here, and anyone can feel free to quote me on that if we do wind up taking him. At the end of the season no one will be happy with the signing but at least it will take some pressure off of Franzen for being lazy and unproductive.
