I could see it, but not for 5 years. 2 or 3.

The significance here is Datsyuk is Anisimov’s role model if you will for what type of player he’d like to become and to receive a vote from him must be a high honor for Anisimov and possibly a motivational tool to use in his development.
You know how you already know that Anisimov is a keeper? The very fact that he wants to model his play after the best all-around hockey player in the game tells you that he understands what the most effective way to play the sport is, and that's more than you can say about a great deal of NHLers.
