Alexander Semin shocked people will his recent comments about Sidney Crosby. According to him, Crosby is only a good player among others and he doesn’t understand why people give him more attention than any other famous players.
Want to know what I think? I think that Semin suffers from a lack of attention and that he is a little jealous of Sidney. [snoop: BOOYAH! So do I!!] It makes me laugh to think of Sidney’s talent won’t last or anything. I already talked about it. I practice with him every morning and to me, he is the best player in the world. I can compare him with any other player against whom I played: No one is that impressive.
I know the story got out here and there in the media, but here it’s not as big as you may think. After all, we’re in Pittsburgh, not in Montréal! We haven’t even talked about it in the locker room. Even Sidney didn’t react, I swear. I’m not surprised: Sidney is better than that, and he doesn’t have time to lose into those kinds of things.
In another team, it may be a reason to motivate the team, but I don’t think it’d be the case with us the next time we face the Capitals. With the duals between Crosby and Ovechkin, and the way Ovechkin and Evgeni Malkin fought last time, we don’t need more motivation.
I don’t know what Semin wanted with those comments. I’m not talking about his hockey skills, because he’s very good, but if he really meant what he said, we don’t see things the same way.
By the way if you are interested what upper body injury Semin has, it is his shoulder. He told that to SovSport writer (not Chesnokov), I am too lazy to provide the link. So we got two players with shoulder injury, Semin and Greenie...
