Now it's time to play everybody's favorite game: "I didn't say that. Sometimes words get twisted", with your host Alex Semin

"This is all just talk. Words can get twisted. There was no talk at all that I am not going to sign with the Capitals for sure. I have not talked to them [the Capitals] about leaving. And please don't ask me questions about the next season anymore."


http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-puck- ... tml?cmp=fb

Maybe he's right about the words being twisted. Maybe he's not. But what has me wondering is the "don't ask about next season" comment.

If it were as simple as him wanting to come back to the Caps, don't you think he would at least address it? Tell everybody "My intentions are to return to Washington", which would at least put the rumor to rest. Instead, you now have people like me wondering what he meant by his last comment.

I'm pretty sure he meant...nothing matters until July 1. If he didn't mean that, then he meant "please don't ask me questions about next season". I don't even know what there is to read into here.

Did I just read that?

Not only is he the last player on that team, or any team, that I'd want killing penalties - his lazy and stupid play, was so often the reason his team was shorthanded to begin with.

Come on Semin, just one more contract with the Caps! Do it GMGM.


I heard he wants more drum solos

Shot: One of the hardest and most accurate wrist shots in the league. Ditto for his slap shot, and that is unusual for a player to be that accurate with both shots. He obviously isn't a strong guy, and that tells you his technique is almost perfect.

Puck Handling: He is a total dangler with the puck. Great at carrying it through the neutral zone.


He has the best wrist shot in the league and is probably the most technically skilled player in the league.

I would absolutely love Semin on this team. I don't give a **** what anyone says. He is a good defensive player. He blocks shots. He back checks and always has a good amount of takeaways he is such a absurdly good skater... I could only imagine him and Crosby on the same line

Is he worth 6.7 million? He had 19 blocks this season (Maybe WSH stat guy is really stingy??). I dont know what he was doing the 2 years his point totals were blown up, or what he's been doing since, but a multi year high cap hit deal for this guy? No Thanks.

No, Semin just doesn't block shots. I thought I was his biggest defender, inasmuch that I think he might be the most technically talented player in the league, but I guess we have a closet fan here after all...
