Click here to watch video of exclusive interview with Alex Semin from Championat.ru after KHL game between CSKA and Atlant in Moscow (Sept. 8, 2008).
Semin: Had a chance to watch the game, two teams that I know well, I know a lot of guys from both teams...
What do you think about KHL?
It's a first year, too early to say anything, we'll see... I can't add anything else.
Do they take KHL seriously in America?
It started this year, I haven't been in US yet. I mean, I can't say anything, really.
Are you preparing for the new season?
Yes, I am training...
Here, in Moscow?
No, in Krasnoyarsk.
When are you leaving to US?
I miss hockey, to have too much rest is also bad. I am leaving on 18th.
What are the expectations for a new season? Are you going to win the Stanley Cup?
(shrugs)We'll do all we can, we'll try to win, we have a very good team now, a young team... Sergei Fedorov signed for one more year... We got 4 Russians now, what else do you need?
Did Sergei Fedorov bring something special to the team?
Oh yeah... He added a class to our team. He is always helpful, constantly gives good advices and plays himself very well...
What about the World Championship Cup?
Good memories, they will stay forever, let's go to make more pictures with it.
