    Afinogenov was all wheels. His hands and brain could hardly keep up.

    Maybe his brain, but I think you remember incorrectly if you don't think he had good hands.



    The guy looked like a Pavel Bure clone in his prime.

    I think Samsonov had better hands though, he was much slower but his stickhandling was elite.

    That's just everything coming together perfectly for him. He had a mediocre shot and decent hands, nothing special. Samsonov takes this.

    I agree, I just remember him pulling that stuff off pretty regularly when I watched him. For a few seasons there he was a very good player.

    One of the first guys I traded for in EA Sports games. So good with my thumbs controlling his brain :)
