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.
It's a good question - to me Anisimov is a 45 pt 3c with excellent defense...and upside to boot. Kreider might have more upside, but if we are trading for a LW and getting Richards I think Anisimov here and now is more important for our success. A bird in the hand...
