TSN Doesn't Know Maxim Afinogenov Very Well

TSN has listed the finest remaining free agents in a new article. Front and center is former Buffalo Sabres forward Maxim Afinogenov. Their write-up on him is amusing:

The Russian forward had 24 goals and 37 assists for the Thrashers last season, equalling his career-high in points (61, a mark which he had previously set during the 2006-07 campaign). Last season was Afinogenov's first year with a team other than the Sabres, where he had spent nine seasons (he was drafted by Buffalo in 1997). At 30, Afinogenov seems poised to bring some added scoring to a team looking for a solid offensive force with lots left to offer.

It's all straightforward, but Afinogenov's career-best in points isn't 61 - in 2006, the Russian led the team with 73 points. Whoever put this piece together, would have had to just click on his name at the website to realize this. These days, it's not easy being a responsible journalist.
