Right now Anisimov (4) has double the amount of goals this season compared to that of Rick Nash (2) has since the trade was made. Anisimov has had 17:44 of PP time so far opposed to Nash having had 37:16. Nash has mostly been playing with Brad Richards and Marian Gaborik while Anisimov has a totally different set of players around him. Anismimov has a current caphit of $1,8M and Nash of $7,8M.

Small sample size yes - and this does not make Nash a bust or anything - but still... instant success in NYC is truly a relative term. No?
