'Zhitnik's agent, Serge Levin, has lopped a few dollars off his original request of $4 million a year for the defenseman, but the agent remains frustrated with Buffalo's evaluation of Zhitnik's worth. "We discuss only the offensive situation about Alex Zhitnik," Levin said Tuesday. "If he would play with an offensive team – a real offensive team, like Dallas or, of course, Colorado – he would get many more points. . . . The tactics of (the Sabres) are much more defensive."'
