First season in NHL:

Afinogenov: 65 - 16 - 18 - 34

I don't think that Perezhogin is as fast, as shifty and as smart as Afinogenov.
I actually think Perezhogin has as good hockey sense, if not better. It took Afinogenov a while to develop overall on-ice awareness, but Perezhogin has so far developed very well under Gainey & Carbo. There was a huge difference between the lost-boy Perezhogin under Julien and the aggressive forechecking, cycling Perezhogin at the end of the season. I think that bodes well.
