Description: Hurricanes winger Alexander Semin had an assist Saturday, but is still searching for his first goal of the season.
Insight: Semin's inconsistency continues to plague him and the team, and he now has only 4 points and a rough -7 rating overall. Owners should not expect him to get going anytime soon.

Description: Hurricanes winger Alexander Semin will most likely be a healthy scratch on Saturday.
Insight: He has been an inconsistent player throughout his career, and head coach Bill Peters stated that Semin "isn't playing with the pace the league is at." That is a pretty big shot given, but it is warranted, as Semin has only two points, and is -7 through eight games. Carolina is paying him $7 million annually through the 2017-18 season.

Description: Hurricanes winger Alexander Semin posted his first two points of the season assisting on two of Jiri Tlusty's three goals.
Insight: Semin used to be a 75-80 point a season guy in Washington and posted 44 points in 44 games back in 2012 for Carolina so we know he can still do it. The real question is can he stay healthy.

Description: It is hard to know what to expect from Hurricanes winger Alexander Semin this season.
Insight: Semin scored 44 points in the same number of games in his first season with Carolina, but scored just 42 points in 65 games last season. There is a good chance that a concussion in December of 2013 severely slowed his production. New head coach Bill Peters has jumbled the lines in preseason, so there is no guarantee that Semin again plays on the top line. If he is on the top line, Semin is a solid mid-round pick otherwise, there is some risk involved.

A report surfaced about a week-and-a-half ago that Semin hadn't fully recovered yet from off-season surgery to his wrist, which had been nagging him since the beginning of last year. Francis expects that to be a thing of the past.
