Afinogenov trade talks have yet to take-off

From John Vogl of the Buffalo News:

One forward the Sabres have discussed internally about moving is right wing Maxim Afinogenov. External discussions have yet to blossom.

“From the trade standpoint and interest,” Regier said, “my conversations with different clubs is everyone is assessing their needs and assessing what they’re looking to do more positionally, as opposed to, ‘Will you move this guy or this guy?’ I think as we get closer to the draft that will pick up.”

With their depth at forward, and need on defense, I think a Maxim Afinogenov deal may go down closer to the draft. Teams that have a logjam on defense fit as logical trade partners. Edmonton anyone???
