There's a difference between playing for the Rangers and the Jackets. He spent a few years in the NYR system, but has no ties to Ohio whatsoever.
Anisimov had to learn English cause he was the only Russian on the team, but in general you can live in NYC and never learn the language. Just go to the Brighton Beach and you can find there even black people who can speak Russian, they've learned it at work. Also NYC is a big stage unlike Columbus.
Right now Anisimov has to choose between his hometown and Columbus. His NHL contract expires at the end of this season and he gonna get a really good offer from the Loko that Columbus possibly won't be able to match.
