Max for Manny. Buffalo needs a center that wins FO and Max add to the scoring for Columbus

Manny Malhotra?? Umm, no way Buffalo has any interest in this whatsoever..why would they give up an electric scorer/skater for a FO guy?

Add a 3rd from CBJ to Buf and it's a deal.

Columbus doesn't need or want Afinogenov. Certainly not at the cost of our best faceoff guy and second best penalty killer.

He's a scorer, but he's not particularly good, and he wouldn't fit well with the Jackets.

because they have depth in scoring and wingers, they have no depth at center, and they are weak on faceoffs. It would also allow Goose to play more wing were he can take more advantage of his size and physical play.

I think Max is what Columbus needs more than you think. Quick and can open up some ice for others (if he can stay onsides) I go to alot of Jacket games and we need someone that fans get excited about when he jumps the boards. As Jame put it Buffalo need depth and use Goose and timmy on the wings if need.

Value wise getting Max for Manny would be a good deal for Columbus.......BUT......

What will get the fans in Columbus out of their seats are to win more games and make the playoffs. They had Zherdev and moved him because he didn't fit Hitch's plan, neither would Max. They also already have a player in Chimera with the same talent for constantly going offsides.

So I say no to Max.

I think this would get some thought from the CBJ brass. If Hitch thought he could get Max to play 2 way hockey this gets done quick.

Max tries to play 2-way hockey...he just sucks at it. Effort is there, but he's no good defensively.

As for the deal, I'd rather hold on to Max if it's a straight up deal. Throw in a pick/prospect and I'd listen.

If you take into consideration that they are both UFA's, and the fact that Manny is 2 mil cheaper I thought would make the trade closer. Both teams can use the players to make their clubs better so it works on both ends......Buffalo save cash and Columbus get better believe it or not.

Whats up everyone, Moon Man here again. Not quite enough return for what could be a vertical return to the stratosphere after a nosedive of a season. If only Gainey could've worked something for Afinogenov, but that would've been hard to work out. I'd take him this season.
