think more Lapierre/Hansen/3rd or 4th liner types...less all-star top-line forward. personally i'd be quite enthused if we get something like that out of a 7th rounder.
what is it about anthony that gives people the impression he has any of the mentality to be a 3rd or 4th liner? the ahl and echl is full of talented players his size that didn't change their game and anthony hasn't really shown signs of being the kind of player that would do what it takes
