  • Mark Jones talks about why Alexander Semin is rightfully deserving of a spot on the Russian Olympic hockey team. (Bleacher Report)

My Opinion.

I was shocked when Alexander Semin did not make the original Russian Olympic Team. He is much more talented than a lot of players on the original squad, in my opinion.

He deserves to be on the team, especially since he has been on a goal scoring tear lately. The Russian sniper has four goals in his past three games and has a plus/minus of +3 in that span.

He will be one of many dangerous goal scorers on the Russian Olympic team which will make them a big threat offensively throughout the Olympics in Sochi.

Metropolitan Division Update

  • The Pittsburgh Penguins continue to win as they took down the Montreal Canadians 5-1 on Wednesday night. Former Carolina Hurricanes forward Jussi Jokinen netted two goals in route to the Penguins’ big win.
