Nobody's suggesting we trade Anisimov for the sake of trading him, but he's likely the odd man out BECAUSE of all the positives you listed. He has value. He's on a good contract. He's young. He has potential to improve. He has a great skillset. For those reasons, he's attractive to other teams, and if we can make a clear upgrade, I wouldn't hesitate to include Anisimov in a bigger package to put us over the top.
Well every thing in my post SAYS that the only way it would make sense is in a package for a clear upgrade. The OP seemed to want to suggest that AA was disappointing compared to expectations, which I wanted to make clear should not be the case. I'd hate to move AA at all, on a personal level, because I just like him a lot, but if the package was for the right player, of course you have to be on board.
