Anisimov is a lanky, not highly skilled centerman who can't grind. That's a great two-way forward isn't it? One you'll be waiting years for to show up in the playoffs..

Personally, if Murphy is as good as they say he is those two are expendable to get him. If he's closer to Doughty than Sanguinetti you make that move. It's nice to have youth coming through, but they just aren't that good.

Laughable. I suppose you would have dealt Nemchinov away for a prospect as well? We're trying to build a team here. Trading proven young commodities for a 5'9" 18 year old dman is not in the cards.

So I suppose it really doesn't matter if you like our 44 point 22 year old 2 way center or not, because there is no way management ever does anything remotely resembling that deal.

And a good thing, too.
