Anisimov is a longer term project but I think he, alone with Cherapanov, are the real keys to the Rangers offensive future. He's got legit top 6 forward talent, so long as a team is willing to accept that this isn't going to be a player who starts to make an NHL impact until he's been in the league a few years.

In this case I go with Anisimov's upside vs. the safety that is Korpikoski.

Korpikoski is more certain to be a long-time NHL player, but Anisimov is more naturally talented.
This sums it up for me. Voted Anisimov, but it was a tough decision.
