People act like because that chance didn't work out, it's a fail. In reality, whenever you ship out a guy who's a sure thing to be a 3rd or 4th liner in exchange for a guy who's got something like a 25-33% chance of becoming a top 6 winger, by definition the project is going to bust more than half the time - but you keep doing it so that eventually you get that 1 out of 3 or 4 who works out.
Agreed. It was the right trade at the time, but Rangers just can't afford to gamble on him for another season.

I do hope this doesn't have a negative effect on Anisimov's mind-set.
