Anisimov is a solid 2nd liner but I don't see him as a sure thing. Dubinsky has intangibles and can play on the 3rd line. Erixon, meh.
I really would have thought that they would have gotten back a Krieder or Hagelin as a centerpiece.
Columbus is a team that probably has more to gain from 2 or 3 sure thing 2nd tier players over a single
high-end player, though. Too many rushed prospects with high-end potential has put that organization in the situation it is currently in. Having some steady, high character, high work ethic young guys is not as sexy, but I think it will ultimately do far more for the franchise than getting back one of those elite pieces that may not pan out.
