Considering the horible season he has had thus far you would have to think that Buffalo would try to deal him, especially if they fall out of the playoff race. I don't know how long his contract is, all it says on TSN is that in 2006 he signed a multi- year deal. I know a lot of people are going to think i'm crazy for suggesting this but he was just starting to come into his own offensively before this season. Maybe being on the same line with either Z or Pavel could re-ignite this kid?

Too small, not physical. If were gonna get a skilled player, I'd rather shell out for Sundin or Hossa.

They would probably cost a lot more to acquire.

No thanks. Too small, not physical. Can you imagine Phaneuf, Regher, Pronger, etc. going up against him ROFL

ufa after next season (in the books at 3.5). it's an interesting thought, and no doubt will come at a much lesser cost than either sundin or hossa. that is if buffalo would even entertain the thought. if i remember correctly, he's been some what of an enigma for the sabres. seems like i caught a broadcast or two last year?

definitely something for us to debate. lol.

I love the talent that Mad Max can bring, but his desire to win is very questionable. If we got him for cheap, then I'd be fine with the move, but I wouldn't want to give up anything of value for him. He is, after all, having a very bad season.

Max creates a lot of chances he's not good enough to finish. He's pretty much the exact opposite of the type of player we need.

Am I the only one who drools over the thought of this? This kid is one of my faves. I think he'd thrive playing for the Wings. No he isn't physical, but he's not a wuss either. I really like the idea of him here. He's got tons of talent, and would shine here.

He's a donkey-faced turnover machine that would quickly make LGW members forget how much they hate Sammy. He's also too streaky a scorer to count on him in the playoffs. We need either a real top 6 forward, or some toughness on defense, not enough soft player.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I can imagine him skating around all their asses like pylons.You obviously haven't seen enough of him.

You've obviously had some success with him in video games if you actually think that he's that good.

Afinogenov is exactly what the Wings don't need. Their cap money would be better spent elsewhere.

People in Buffalo would love to hear you say that. They want him OUT of here.

This is 100% correct on a scale of 0-100%. You couldn't possibly be any more correct. It isn't mathematically possible. Not yet. We don't have the technology.

Of course everyone will *like* picking up a player of Afinogenov's mold; however, when it comes to GIVING to the Sabres in exchange, people will not be so happy.

I love Max's skill no doubt, but I think his questionable desire to win would be a dangerous thing to add to such a hardworking team as the Wings.


But as for Phaneuf, Regher, etc going up against Max, hah, well theyd have to catch him first. Hed win a foot race with Niedermayer, let alone outskate big defenseman like the above mentioned ones. Id probably value his speed even more than his stick handling skills..
