    Semin's Agent: "there’s no reason to be together"

    Alexander Semin is one of six Capitals players set to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1, but his agent made it clear on Monday that the team’s current style of play doesn’t make best use of the winger.

    While Semin’s agent, Mark Gandler, wouldn’t rule out the possibility of his client returning to Washington, at this point it seems unlikely.

    “We need to see where they see the team going, which direction and then we’ll talk to management and see if we’re going the same way,” Gandler said in a phone interview. “If they need Alex we’ll talk. If they don’t need Alex, as they did not need him this year, then there’s no reason to be together. Then they won’t be paying a lot of money and Alex won’t be wasting his career.”

    He will hoepfully find a system he'll thrive in. Very lazy pkayer but also very talented, can be a 40 goals corer year in and year out

    ^ Yeah, the talent level is pretty incredible. He shows flashes of brilliance but then it goes away and a stupid penalty comes along.

    I think his marriage with the Caps has been coming to an end for a couple years now.

    I think this is a great thing for the Caps, quite frankly. It seemed like a big problem for Washington this year was the fact Ovi and Semin didn't feel like playing. When those two focus and want to win games, not many teams will stop them. When they don't feel like playing, the Caps seem to struggle. Spend the money on grittier forwards who want to win, like Laich, Ward, and Brouwer.
