Afinogenov Made The Right Decision

from the Buffalo News,
Nobody could blame him for having second thoughts. Maxim Afinogenov was coming off the most enjoyable season of his professional career. He played on a championship team in his hometown. He had his friends, his family, his language and his tennis star girlfriend, Elena Dementieva. Why not stay? Afinogenov wrestled with the decision during the lockout last year while playing for the Moscow Dynamo in the Russian Elite League. He's a two-time Olympian, a household name in Moscow. Russian owners are shelling out big money these days, so he could have easily signed a contract and settled into the comforts of home.
