Dubinsky and Anisimov are both frustrating.

Anisimov is the more skilled player but we only see flashes of it. He takes too long to get his shot off. He puts himself in a position where he is vulnerable to being hit. Being given the opportunity to play on the top line with Stepan and Gaborik, he should have set career highs instead of regressing.

Dubinsky has the physical tools to be a power forward, but he doesn't always use it to his advantage. This season, he was far too hesitant to shoot the puck. Although Dubinsky usually puts in a good effort, his decision-making is suspect.

I hope both of them pick it up for the playoffs. However, I have my doubts about whether Anisimov can handle the physical elements of the playoff grind.
