08:21 AM ET 11.21 | Carolina Hurricanes forward Alexander Semin will need some more time to get into game shape. [Semin] said Tuesday he is still not at full fitness despite playing almost two months of lockout hockey in his native Russia. Semin was one of the NHL's first big names to move abroad when the lockout took effect, joining his hometown junior team in late September before moving up to the KHL with Torpedo Nizhny Novgorod two weeks later. "Without doubt, I still need to improve my physical condition," he said on the Torpedo website. Semin has scored two goals in eight games in the KHL as well as five assists, and said he was also missing his scoring instinct. "I could have scored more points. A lot of chances have come up, but I don't always have enough composure yet."

It also shows his lack of experience. With age you score as often as you can...before long you will have to use performance enhancing pills

I think Slappy's travelling now. He just tweeted that the TSAs at the airport are so busy they're asking you to grope yourself.

I got patted down a couple of weeks ago and the TSA guy was apologetic and said he hoped I didn't mind. I told him that it was the high point of my day and that anybody who had to pat me down deserved extra pay! I thought he was gonna fall over laughing.
