Callahan will never score as much as Afinogenov.

Afinogenov may have his issues, but Callahan will never be close to his talent level.

Callahan is vastly overrated by Rangers fans.

I like him too, he is a nice fringe 3rd line player. He REALLY is a 4th line player on a championship team.

He doesn't produce nearly enough to even be a third line player.

But he does fore check hard, and he can kill penalties...

Sounds an awful lot like a 4th line player.

Afinogenov is good for at least 20 goals per season on average, although he is inconsistent. Sounds an awful lot like a 3rd line player.

So if you trade Cally for Afinogenov, you are trading a good 4th liner for a good third liner, whose contract won't hand cuff you.

Sounds like a good deal for us.
