Max is a poor mans Gaborik. Great speed, above average puck handling skills, but always seems to have trouble finishing off the spectacular plays he creates.
When nothing is going right, go left.

I have always been a fan of Max. I would love to see him in red. he hasn't had that great of a season at all this year so he would be out there for cheeper.

Maybe being on the same line with either Z or Pavel could re-ignite this kid?


I've always thought Afinogenov was a waste of skill on a player with little/no drive. He can be good, but so could Samsonov. They are similiar in that way.

We don't need passagengers or players Z or Pav could make better, they could make basically anyone better (besides Samuelsson)

Getting Chris Gratton idea is about the best one I've heard.
I sure to like saying Afinogenov though.


Why? So he can sit in the stands during the playoffs.

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


He's good enough to play on Detroit's 2nd line and ahell of a lot better choice than renting Sundin or overpaying for Hossa.
You obviously haven't seen him play enough.

Gratton sitting in the stands for us? Funny, for someone claiming that another poster hasnt seen Afinigenov play, apparently you know absolutely nothing about Gratton if you think guys like Drake and Kopecky should play over him. He'd be a huge upgrade to the bottom 6.
Aaron Downey tally = 4 Wins (Mclaren, PARROS, *Laperriere*, Wisniewski) - 1 L (**Boll**) - 5 Draws (Walker, Fedoruk, Davison, Shelley, O'Donnell)

(* = beatdown) (** = at the end of a shift)

Preseason prediction - Anaheim over Philadelphia in 6 (ok, well i'll settle for one right...)

Oh... but wait, Lou... haven't you heard? Kopecky is supposed to be this big, unstoppable power foward that the Wings have. He's even been compared to a young Todd Bertuzzi. Now why, oh why, would he be benched? He's going to be a star in this league, I just know it! And he's definitly better than that old goon Gratton. What are you thinking!!??

...hehe... I love poking fun at peoples ideas of what Kopecky is on this forum...biggrin.gif

Chris Gratton, not Josh. Chris is the one with 18 points on the 3rd line on the worst team in hockey. This guy would help out grit, toughness, scoring, size, everything.

I'm surprised, if your actually being serious. I'd think that a fight fan like you would realize what a chump Kopecky is, and is not going to be the player people overated him to be around here. He has one good game, and all of a sudden people are calling for him to be the new 2nd line center. Ridiculous.

I like Kopecky, Sure he isnt a fighter, But once he can get some speed implemented into his game theres no reason he cant be a 20-30 point season type guy. Sound defensivly, consistant hitter and has a solid shot.

But i wouldnt hesitate benching him for an enfocer or chris gratton biggrin.gif

And overpaid. I called WGR and jokingly said the Sabres should get Homer for Max, and they lit me up, saying that would never happen, and then they were even more pissed when they found out that Homer makes LESS than Max does.

He's a severe underachiever who (now) can't stay healthy. He is small and can't finish. Why the f*** would you want him for the PLAYOFFS?

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.


Thank you, Captain Obvious.

From TSN :

Maxim Afinogenov appears to be on his way to the Kontinental Hockey League, as Yahoo! Sports reports that SKA St. Petersburg is set to sign the Russian winger to a five-year contract.

According to writer Dmitry Chesnokov, KHL president Alexander Medvedev made the announcement on Friday.
