I mean, what other explanation is there for the question Lion Hound is proposing? It seems logical to me that Renney is keeping Dubinsky at center for a reason. That reason is definitely not current production, so I don't really see the addition of Sundin changing that very much.
I don't know. It's hard to envision a real future with the team at center if you're keeping Anisimov. And if you're looking at the roster and the depth chart, it's clear that the wings are where the future is bleak from a team perspective. Hadn't thought of him BEING the solution to the sad state of the wings, but would be intrigued to see it.

Personally, I still feel like Dubinsky is the most likely member of the organization to be traded though.
