Sushinsky however may be interested in returning to the NHL:

Afinagenov is 27 so that makes him a UFA under the new CBA. Maybe your source is wrong.

Actually that is not true. Look for yourself:

FREE AGENCY

How will Free Agency work?

Unrestricted Free Agency - For the 2005-06 season, a player age 31 with four accrued seasons will be an unrestricted free agent; in 2006-07, a player age 29 with four accrued seasons or with eight accrued seasons; in 2007-08, a player age 28 with four accrued seasons or with seven accrued seasons; beginning in 2008-09 and for the duration of the agreement, a player age 27 with four accrued seasons or with seven accrued seasons will be an unrestricted free agent. For purposes of qualifying for unrestricted free agency, the 2004-05 cancelled season will be counted as a year of accrued service.

What happens to a player who was 30 years old and a restricted free agent at the time the old CBA expired, but who turned 31 on or before June 30, 2005?

Provided the player has four-or-more accrued seasons, he will become an unrestricted free agent on August 1, 2005.

Restricted Free Agency - will continue to operate similarly to how it has operated under the expired CBA.

Afinogenov won't be 29 and he won't have 8 accrued years of service so he OBVIOUSLY will not be a UFA.

For the record, my "source" was Buffalo Sabres GM Darcy Regier in an interview he gave to Eric Duhatschek. I figured it was 100% solid because he should know a thing or 2 about the contractual status of players on his roster.

What is the source of your information?
