You like to see a guy who has a good all around game, but it's not really a bad thing to have a playmaker/sniper on your team(would you classify him as a playmaker or sniper?).
I honestly can't see Anshakov being a 1st line forward.He has the potential to be a good offensive 2nd line winger.He will probably score about 25 goals and add about 20 to 25 assists in a good year.I just can't see him breaking the 30 goal plateau though.He is known more for his shot then his playmaking ability.He also would need to work on his defensive game a little.He is probably a 2-3 year project.
