Alexander Semin Actually Speaks Before 2011 NHL Playoffs

The 2011 NHL Playoffs will be much different for the Washington Capitals than the last three seasons, all of which were dominated by disappointment. They will be different in one key way: Alexander Semin is actually giving interviews before it all happens.

In the last two days, Semin, who normally avoids the media like the plague, has given two sitdown exclusives with American media outlets. The first was with new Washington Times Capitals workhorse beat reporter Steve Whyno, and the second was with Dmitry Chesnokov of Yahoo! Sports' Puck Daddy. Both give us a great look into the hockey career and mindset of a player that has alternatively been dazzling and disappointing.

What does Semin think of Jason Arnott calling him out when he came to the team? What does he think of his team's disappointing finish last year? Why doesn't he talk to reporters? What is different about this year's team? Why is he so inconsistent? You get answers to all these questions in these interviews.
