Who the **** cares where they were on opening night? Right now Brian Boyle is our 3rd line center and Anisimov got traded. During the season, Boyle got consistent 3rd line minutes, assumed a role as a shutdown type of player, and performed admirably.

Im sure the occasional dangle and flash of offensive brilliance from Anisimov sent tingles up your leg, but - much like Dubinsky, I dont think Anisimov knows the type of player he is.

I will rarely shed a tear when a confused player gets shipped out, and Anisimov/Dubinsky were confused hockey players. Worst of all, Anisimov was the softest player on the Rangers outside of Gaborik (who gets a pass with his 40 goals).
