Afinogenov is playing worse than he did last year.
Thus far, I've though Afinogenov has looked fast and dangerous. The problem is, that danger is an illusion. He can tear past a defense, pull 3 fancy moves in a row, but then he loses the puck or can't finish the play.

But unlike a guy like Dumont, at least he is creating chances. His main problem is finish. The man simply can't finish.

If we combined Kotalik's finishing ability with Afinogenov's fancy moves and play making ability, we'd have one hell of a player. Kotalik needs a guy to create the play, and Afinogenov needs one to finish it (but he also needs to learn how to get the puck there).
