Anisimov on the other hand was the 5th highest scorer in the AHL as a 21 year old (highest scorer under the age of 25).

I think its very difficult at this time to gauge how good Grachev will be. Anisimov is a ready product.
If you spent some time looking at his plays or atleast his highlights you'll see how many chances he creates for them and how a lot of his players are created from his bursts of speed or sniping at the corners. I don't mean to say that They were nothing with out him and that Grachev didn't need them... But Grachev was an amazing play maker for them as well as being a talented sniper.
