Alexander Semin's agent, Mark Gandler fired back after TSN analysts Pierre McGuire and Marc Crawford tore into Semin on Sunday.
Semin was "a complete loser" and "the ultimate coach killer" on TSN. "I can tell you that's the worst I've ever heard an analyst say about any player," Gandler said. "What bothered me was that the host [James Duthie] did not step in." Gandler feels that the TSN analysts were being prejudice against Semin because he's Russian. Semin is a capable second liner with the potential to put up all-star numbers. If you draft him under the assumption that he'll give you 50-60 points, then you're golden, but anything more than that and you're taking a risk.
