Say what you will about Dubinsky's and Anisimov's less than stellar years last season, but the offensive ability they were able to inject into the 3rd line and ability to play top 6 minutes has been and will continue to be sorely missed by this team for this season at least and possibly next as well.

Forward group A:

Hagelin - Richards - Gaborik
Dubinsky - Anisimov - Callahan
Kreider - Stepan - Pyatt
Rupp/Asham - Halpern - Boyle

Forward Group B:

Gaborik - Richards - Nash
Hagelin - Stepan - Callahan
Kreider - Boyle - Pyatt
Rupp - Halpern - Asham

A > B
Please dont take advantage of this slow start by trying to say that Dubinsky and Anisimov would be any sort of offensive difference makers, or pushing down offensive difference makers, or whatever point you're trying to make due to the slow start.
