On a more serious note, this guy is gonna be special. Probably a poor man's Chara. He has a very hard shot - look for him to play a role on the PP next season more often than not.

he's not quite the size or skill level of Chara IMO......

I think his skill level is very close to Chara, I wouldn't call him a poor man's Chara IMO the only thing Chara has on Semenov is size. I would compare Semenov more to Uwe Krupp.

Chara was top 5 in points from the blue line and nominated for the Norris this year IIRC..... the skills cannot be compared objectively.

Remeber Chara is 3 or 4 years older. I didn't say he was better I said he is close to Chara's skill level. When Semenov reaches his potential, he should put up similar numbers to Chara now.

He's a guy who's benefitted from Ulanov being here.
