Anisimov is a good young player, Dubinsky is a lot better than he's been this year.
Agreed. It's certainly not a great return but it's not as bad as everyone is making out. Nash pretty much had to be moved and him only waiving to go to certain teams didn't help the Jackets either.

Their season now depends on their goaltending, how much Johanssen develops and whether a guy like Dubinsky can have a bounce back year getting top minutes. They're certainly deeper up front but now don't have much in the way of top end talent. I think their defense is pretty good, there are certainly much worse bluelines out there.
