NewYorkIslanders.com: So, what are your first impressions of Long Island?
Semyon Varlamov: We just came here with my family last week. We haven't had a chance to look around that much, we've been busy with the house situation and everything and trying to get settled. It's been a busy week, but what can I say, Long Island is a beautiful place to live. There's a lot of nice places here and you live near the ocean, what can be better than that?
