Rumors has been flying around concerning the possibility of Afinogenov landing with the Canadiens.
There is no doubt that he has talent and he has showed it in 2005-06 and 2006-07 when he produced a total of 134 points in 133 games.
However, since then, he has produced 48 points in 104, playing only 56 and 48 games during the last two seasons and he saw his rhythm of production drop.
Is he a finished player? We cannot throw the towel since he's only 29 years old, but let's say that he has a knack for forgetting his head and heart in the dressing room, sometimes at home.
Right now, he is training with Andrei Markov, in Russia, his longtime friend. Always according to rumors, the star defensemen has spoken to Bob Gainey about Afinogenov.
Is this true? We can never know but what we do know, is that the Canadiens shouldn't offer him a contract, unless he takes a paycut and he seriously wants to become the player he once were...
A rumor? Common, why propagating that kind of stuff. Completely useless.
