Afigogenov has little trade value at this point. He hasn't accomplished anything more than one 40 point season, add that together with a concusion history and one-dimensional play and you have a guy who would probably not bring you a 3rd rounder in return.
Dipietro requested a short-term demotion because Snow has been on fire. However, Dipietro is slated to be recalled after three AHL games and will probably be the starter for one of the weekend games. The Isles have shown no interest in acquiring a goalie to replace him down the road and Biron is not good enough for that role anyway.
Second, the Isles appear to have their money issues under control, after the Wiemer debacle and insurance picking up Yashin's contract for the next three months.
Third, what makes you think that Buffalo could begin to add this kind of $ to their payroll?
what do you know about the Yashin insurance and where did you read it? i'm curious.
as for the suggested buffalo deals, wow. that's all.
