I have gathered you all here today so we can mourn the loss of our lovely Alex “Sasha” Semin. I just can’t believe he signed with Carolina. I totally didn’t see that one coming.
Sasha…I’m going to miss you. I doubt you’ll ever read this, unless you enjoy reading 18 year old girls’ hockey blogs in your spare time. For some reason I don’t think you do. But I just wanted to say this anyways. I know there were lots of Caps fans and just hockey fans in general who think you’re overrated and you don’t care and yadda yadda yadda, but I most definitely was not one of them. You were my first favorite Capital when I made the transition from Isles to Caps about five years ago. You have so much skill it’s incredible. It’s been such a pleasure watching you skate, snipe the puck past unsuspecting goalies, and do your famous curl and drag. And I’ll never forget that one time at Kettler you nonchalantly walked past me pretending to be on the phone. I got a nice picture of your foot going in the door. I wish you all of the best in Carolina. Thanks for not signing with Pittsburgh…I probably couldn’t handle that. I’m sure Ovi is glad you’re there so you guys can see each other more times than if you went outside our division. And last but not least, score a bajillion goals and be fucking awesome so all the douchey critics can feel like shit for ever talking your abilities down. You’re awesome and you will always hold a special place in my heart. ❤
Hello again people not named Alexander Semin. I really just had to write that…I don’t know why. It needed to be done. I’ve been sitting here all sad thinking about him leaving. We’re running out of Russians! Who is Ovi gonna talk to now…little Dima? Is he gonna try and steal Nicky back
strom (Hahah. See what I did there?) from Mike? And who is Sasha gonna talk to?!?!?! There are no Russians on the Canes! At least I don’t think… And there’s two Staal brothers! That’s going to be awkward, especially because Semin played the bongos on Marc a few years ago. I just have all of these feels. I’m going to miss that crazy Russian and all of his hooking penalties.
I found this video of some highlights of Alex and thought it was great. Just shows you how incredibly talented he is.
AND NOW WE CRY. SASHA IN ENGLISH. He’s so cute and stuff and I can’t. “I like play here.” ~Le me sobbing uncontrollably~ I LIKE YOU PLAY HERE TOO SASHA. Washington will always be your home. I’m going to miss you so much.
I can’t go on any longer. I’m off to find my Semin shersey, some chocolate, and some happier videos. Until next time.
