"What's so special about (Semin)? I don't see anything special there. Yes, he does shoot well, has a good head, good skill. But there's nothing else. Even if you compare him to Denis Kokarev from Moscow ... (Kokarev) is a much more interesting player. The way he moves, his deking abilities, his thinking on the ice and his anticipation of the play is so superb. I guess you can't take any player, even if he is "dead wood," and start promoting him, and get a star. Especially if it's been 4 seasons since he scored 60 points. No one is going to care about him. No one is going to care whether he possesses great skill."
