Is Semin A Coach Killer?

from Chuck Gormley of CSN Washington,

The agent for Alex Semin is not a happy man.

After hearing his client called “a coach killer” and “a complete loser,” Mark Gandler had some harsh words for TSN analysts Pierre McGuire and Marc Crawford on Sunday, saying their comments could get in the way of contract talks with NHL teams interested in signing Semin as an unrestricted free agent.

“I can tell you that’s the worst I’ve ever heard an analyst say about any player,” Gandler told CSNWashington.com. “What bothered me was that the host [James Duthie] did not step in.”

During TSN’s broadcast, McGuire accused Semin of being a bad teammate, adding, “he’s the ultimate coach killer, that’s what he is.”
