For the third time is his eight-year NHL career, the Russian sniper is playing at a point-per-game pace. The easy - and accurate - explanation is that Semin has meshed well with Hurricanes captain Eric Staal.

"His size and reach and strength are things that I'm good at as well," Staal said. "I think me being a left shot playing center, taking the puck up the middle of the ice, then making forehand passes - not backhand passes to his side - I think that's a difference. We've started to grow comfortable with each other."

"Alex is a quiet guy," defenseman Jay Harrison said. "But he's a great element in our room. He's very involved, he's close to a lot of guys."

Give the man a multi year deal already. He's earned it.
