Consider these factors

Dubinsky saw a significant rise in his +/- this season
Both players had significant dips in scoring this season.
Dubinsky played 77 games this season and last
Anisimov played 82 games this season and last
Anisimov logged several shifts on the first line this season, Dubinsky did not.
Dubinsky is stellar on the PK
4 of Dubinsky's goals last season came on the PP. He rarely received PP time this season.

What I don't get is, how some people dog on Dubinsky so hard yet Anisimov seems to get a free pass. This isn't so much a dig at Ani, I like him and I think he's an important part of the team but it's pretty puzzling how Dubinsky gets **** on.

It wasn't just fans. Even he has made it clear he likes the kid *Torts benched Dubinsky numerous times this season for poor play however in past seasons, unproductive stars with much more offensive talent than Dubi were given a free pass.

Dubi deserves more respect than has been given to him this season...
Good thread..What I thuink it comes down to is expectations for Dubi are way higher...
