All this shows me that the Rangers are stronger down the middle than they've been in a long time. Just comparing Anisimov to Stepan though--Artem's a more rounded and a bigger player--though he could fill out more--Derek is the more creative of the two though. 40 some points as a raw rookie is nothing to sneeze at. He needs to get stronger too.

Personally I can't remember really the last time we had set lines that stayed that way from one end of the year to the other. There's a lot of interchangeablity and it's not even neceassarily about who might be playing better--sometimes it's situational--as a for instance I'd prefer Anisimov on the ice more in the last 5 minutes of a game that we were ahead by a goal. If we were behind by a goal in those last few minutes and say going on a pwp--I'm taking Stepan over Anisimov every time.
