Sabres to trade Afinogenov + Sean Avery Update

Buffalo Sports News is reporting that the Sabres are looking for a taker for Afinogenov who continues to be a healthy scratch.

It is reported that Afinogenov “figures if he isn’t going to play for the Sabres, he may as well play for someone else” and that “if they’re not using me, it’s probably no point for me to be here.”

It is also noted that in order for the Sabres to fit Afinogenov back into their roster they will have to make a move as they are “at their 23 man limit” without him.

While Afinogenov hopes to be traded it is reported that last summer the Sabres tried to deal him but were unable to find a taker.

In other NHL news it is heavily reported that the Dallas Stars will place Sean Avery on re entry waivers tomorrow. It is likely that the Rangers will pick him up and take another chance on him due to his past success in the big apple.

    pick him up leafs
    then let him play next year
    (couldnt hurt and being a leader on a young team could drastically change his attitude)
    then trade him to the highest bidder

    As a Bruins fan I hope the Rangers pick up Avery. This will give Lucic two chances to beat the sh*t out of him…Then after Lucic gets his revenge I can go back to liking Avery. I honestly thought he would have been an awesome fit for the B's… then he signed with Dallas, the hilariously inappropriate comments were said, and of course the Boston/Dallas, Lucic/Avery, Ott is a giant P*ssy fiasco soon made me realize it wasn't gunna happen.

    He would be horrible on a young team!

    Avery = team cancer

    Has Lucic ever fought anyone his size?? He's just a ***** ass MF'r.

    he wasnt a team cancer on the Rangers
    in fact he obviously did something right to warrant them wanting him back
    you cant really say he is a team cancer if he got suspended for some comments he said
    i really think that if he was given the opportunity to lead a team that is young
    he could snap back into a good player and leader
    especially with a coach like wilson
    and if not just bury him in the minors
    the leafs would have nothing to loose and everything to gain

    yes thats not much
    but Afinogenov aint gonna bring back much
