As you can see Anismov also seems to be a healthier player, plus again three years younger, and cheaper, and not going to be a UFA soon.
MacArthur's last year you quoted was actually split between Buffalo and Atlanta.
81 games, 16 goals, 19 assists for 35 points.
The first year you provided was also a year split between the AHL and NHL, it has nothing to do with MacArthur's health, he played a full year. He was on pace for 33 points.
The contract and age differential is dualy noted. Although, MacArthur is from the west and I'd be very suprised if he didn't resign at the same or less money on a new deal. Anisimov's contract will also likely go up this offseason.
MacArthur also has a 62 point season, and 2 years where he has been at or over 20 goals. He is a much more proven asset at this stage than Anisimov.
