I agree Anisimov is getting jobbed by Torts. it took 20 NHL games for Stepan to play with Gabby.
I think The thought of Anisimov playing with Gabby regularly seems to be some kind of an abomination to Torts.
I understand Stepan has better vision but you know what he is a rookie, terrible on faceoffs and call me old fashioned but he needs to wait his turn.
Anisimov played on the 4th line all last year and he deserves at least 14-17 minutes a game. Especially after his success with the first line before Gaborik's return.
This isn't an anti-Stepan post but more of a Pro- Anisimov one, he is defensively responsible and gets better with more playing time as we have seen throughout his whole pro career.
Playing with Boogy and Todd White 6 minutes a night is stunting his progress as a Pro.
If this is truly about playing the kids and the future Anisimov should be playing 1st line over EC and Stepan.
