I respectfully disagree with that assessment. I see a player who is struggling with confidence on the offensive side of the puck, but his positioning, forechecking and effort is there. Again, nobody is going to confuse him for Callahan out there, but he's not loafing and trying to cherry pick in the neutral zone.

He went an entire month on the top line (for most of the month) with ZERO point.

Why do people think he's good? For what reason? Is it because he's tall, or Russian, or you like his name? What has he done that tells you he's going to miraculously have a "breakout" year?

I like the kid, and he seems like a really great person. Unfortunately, he's just not that good, or tough, or anything, and people just need to accept that.
Are you still talking about Anisimov or are you talking about Dubinsky?
