Well, maybe i should rather write this in the "unpopular opinion thread", but actually i don't think that he is such a bad setter. Whenever i am watching (not very often), he plays quite OK. Just look at his record and recent achievements. He won as main setter:
silver ech 2011
seria A champion 2012
bronce olympics 2012
silver ech 2013
russian cup 2014
At least, he doesn't prevent his teams from being successful.
I don't believe any setter whom I've watched sending his spikers to 6 consecutive blocks by the opponent http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-vDrQD3woSo
