Afanasenkov to Russia

Spector's is reporting that Dmitri Afanasenkov signed with the Moscow Dynamo of the Russian super league. Nothing has been said yet about the length of time or the $.

The Hockey News has it in their transaction list as well.

I guess the nets are as easy to miss in Russia as they are here.

In Russia, the pucks score you.

That should help his game.

No big deal. This team won't miss Afanastinkov. It just means that Umberger should slide on in to the third line left wing slot, move Knuble or Upshall to the right side, drop Kapanen to the fourth and have someone like Matsumoto center the fourth line with Kapanen and Eager on the wings. Works for me.

Umberger will be the 4th line center as of today according to Holmgren apparently... I very much doubt Matsumoto is ready to step up and play in the NHL... I also don't like using young kids like that in low minute roles. Would much rather him get a full year and a lot of ice in the AHL.

I dont like using young kids that are future top 6 guys in low minute rolls. If they are future bottom 6 guys, I dont mind as much. If Cabana/Matsumoto, etc., guys expected to be bottom 6 make the team, so be it.

the thing is that they still need to learn their craft and to play at the professional level... that happens much quicker if they get a season of heavy minutes in the AHL than smaller role in the NHL...

The thing is that this wouldn't be a typical fourth line that sees a standard 5 to 7 minutes of ice time a night. That's a fourth line you could throw out there for 10 to 12 minutes a night and it won't hurt you in any way, shape, or form.

Matsumoto has zero shot at making the roster out of camp.

we're not giving a rookie center 10-12 minutes a night on the 4th line with Briere, Carter, and Richards ahead of them. Briere is going to be seeing at least 20 a night, so that'll give you 40 minutes between Carter, Richards, and the 4th line center. They will likely each see 17-18 minutes a night next year... so even accounting for situations when everyone is out there, that isn't getting you 10-12 minutes on the 4th line.

and as GKJ says, he's not making this roster out of camp anyway. have patience with young kids and let them develop without being thrown into the pan.
