Good depth up the middle, but to me you can go out and get a good third line center fairly cheap, which makes Anisimov expendable. You can't get a guy like Kreder for cheap.
Right. Do you make Anisimov a third line center? Is Stepan the third line center? Again, I realize you cross that bridge when you come to it, but presuming we get Richards, and NY believes Stepan is the better fit long term, maybe Anisimov gets pushed. Most teams would be upgrading (when combining potential) with Anisimov as their 2nd line center.
