from Bucky Gleason of the Buffalo News,
He spent the first 19 games this year floating around the perimeter, drawing his linemates offside, giving away the puck and generally wasting space. Edmonton’s Jarret Stoll was the only forward in the league who had a worse plus-minus than Afinogenov’s minus-9 going into the game Friday night.
Afinogenov has three goals and eight points, putting him on pace for 12 goals and 32 points. How does a man blessed with so much give so little? It’s a question the Sabres need to ask in the coming months. Opposing defenses have effectively negated their speed this season, taking away his effectiveness.
