One of the league's most complex enigmas, Alexander Semin will no longer be Washington's headache, as the immensely skilled and occasionally flighty winger heads south to divisional rival Carolina after inking a one-year, seven million contract with the Hurricanes in July. Semin disappointed owners often last season, as his 21 goals were the lowest of his career since his rookie season in 2003-04. It's not that his numbers were down, it's that he disappeared for several games at a time. Semin has produced two point-per-game or better seasons in his career, only to follow up the last one with back-to-back 54-point campaigns. (It's worth noting that in his 54-point season in 2010-11, he played 12 fewer games than last year). The smart money has him playing alongside one of the Staal brothers where 30 goals and 70 points certainly are not out of the question, but is still questionable given Semin's tendencies. One certainty is that Semin will play well in the six games Carolina plays against Washington. Draft Semin accordingly, just know what you're getting into. (Updated 8/14/12)
