People need to learn to follow a team. There doesn't need to be a scapegoat. You don't need to scream at a guy you don't like, or ask for the coach to be fired. The fact that we have threads going at half of this team's roster right now is comical bordering on embarrassing.
Points wise yea he's produced about as good as any though he did get many years in college so that does influence the comparison.

I always personally really liked Anisimov more that's just me and I wish we had traded Stepan instead. I worry that he's not making improvements he should be and does not contribute enough around the ice. As always though I admit i'm limited in my hockey knowledge and tho many share my thoughts on this I admit I may be missing things. I always hope to be wrong too when it comes to criticizing a ranger player. Stepan has certainly made great plays and is a tremendous lplayer in many ways to make it this far but I hope he becomes more noticeable and helps us win more.
