If the perceived values from our trading partner are equal, I give up Anisimov over Dubinsky without a second thought.
He was bumped down in the lineup, and earned his way back onto that line within a game or two. Dubinsky has been middling on the 3rd line for the better part of the season. While Dubinsky is better at faceoffs, and brings more physicality, I'd take the rest of Anisimov's game over Dubinsky's pretty easily.
