The Capitals’ big night in Detroit marked an important milestone for a player dear to this blog’s collective heart. Alex Semin recorded his 400th career point when he assisted Keith Aucoin’s spin-o-rama.

CSN-DC commemorated the moment by isolating Sasha on the bench, where he was deep in thought. About something. And to amp up the creepiness, they zoomed. Ladies and gentlemen, we proudly present — straight from Peter Robbio’s Youtube page — the most absurd video we’ve ever seen.

So what is Sasha Minor thinking about? Dale Hunter’s whiteboard sessions? Golf carts? The misanthropic oeuvre of French playwright Molière? We will never know, ’cause he’s not gonna give another English-language interview until Matt Bradley shoots off at the mouth again.
