i know what you're saying...but afanasenkov isn't exactly a young, high-regarded prospect. up until this season, a lot of people wondered if he'd ever make it out of the AHL. he's looked promising at times, yes...but he's still largely unproven. you wouldn't say that harold druken could command two second rounders, would you? i think it's a similar case. druken looked pretty good at times in the NHL, but never put together a season or even a half a season of consistent play.
where is he, now?
