IMO, he has the most talented skill set in the league but he has to want to play. I think it benefits him that this is a 48 game season, he shouldn't have too many lulls.
FWIW, I also believe the caps organization is mainly at fault. Sure Semin has his flaws, just like any player but the fact that he is fitting in Carolina just shows how ****ed up the caps organization is.
This is what always happens. The players end up flourishing elsewhere because the caps have no clue how to handle players. Ovie will also be a "rejuvinated" 40+ goal scorer if traded to another organization.
Fovie (Fat Ovie) would not be a 40+ scorer any team unless the create a new cherry picker rule. He has the same move set he had as a rookie and no longer has the speed to capitalize on it. Enter the blue line, curl back or look to take it between the hash marks for a shot.
