He's also suing the Rangers for bonus money that they didn't pay him, and still refuse to pay him. Dunno, honestly I don't see a big point in Holik, and he's not going to come super cheap either. He still seems too slow for the Rangers, who like guys who can skate on their top lines

Korpikoski's natural position is wing, so there will be no issue with him playing there whatsoever. Still, the added flexibility he offers by being able to play all three positions makes him extremely valuable.

Honestly, I think Dubi is better better suited to be moved to wing than either Drury or Anisimov. But we'll have to wait and see how things work out -- this likely isn't a question that will need to be answered at the start of next season, because Anisimov is very likely to spend at least part of next season in Hartford. One thing's for sure, there's no such thing as "too deep" at center.
Pretty much. Anisimov really seems more like a center than a winger, and Korpikoski is actually already a winger. Dubinsky is probably more suited for wing than Anisimov, but I'm not sure about compared to Drury...

In any case, I think this is pretty premature, because Squishy is probably right in that Anisimov is going to need at least part of another year in the AHL.
