The board play might not be a big deal during the regular season. Playoffs is a different story. It's tougher to work the puck around in the dangerous areas and that's when the cycle game kicks in. To me, Anisimov isn't engaged enough along the boards to be a good playoff performer for this team. He's being pegged in as a top 6 player. Yea, during the regular season maybe; but like I've said before I just don't see it translating successfully in the playoffs. One hesitant & disengaging play can decide a series. Have Arty train with Datsyuk over the summer.

Listen, I'd love to be wrong. It's just how I see it.
