Alexander Semin Kicked off Team Russia

From The Hockey News,

The Hockey News.com has learned Washington Capitals star Alexander Semin has been kicked off the Russian national team, prompting Semin’s agent to refer to the fiasco as, “the most bizarre situation I’ve ever experienced in hockey, ever.”
Mark Gandler, who represents Semin, said the Russian team’s decision to remove Semin from the team because he arrived hours after the team’s first practice was unreasonable and far too harsh.
