The most significant stat I saw about Dubi and Anisimov last year was that they appeared in 60% or so of faceoffs in the defensive half of the rink.

You hear about how Malhotra only took faceoffs in the defensive zone for VAN and how much that influenced strategy in the league - Dubi & Anisimov were doing something similar for NYR, and now that is completely gone.

This is why I felt the Nash move was probably needed, but the team would have to take other steps to compete for the Cup. This season might be a wash now though w/ the bad start and injuries.

(forgive me if I have that stat slightly wrong, don't have to time to grab it)
