See ya next season.
Not criticizing him for staying in college, but if he signs two years ago and gets into the Ranger system he would be a much better player.
Anisimov got pasted like this once a week and always got up and made plays . Difference being AA was a heady player who thought the game in all 3 zones well. TORTS , assessment of CK is spot on kid has a lot to learn a out being a pro and the game . I always feared he was mentally weak when he repeatedly felt he wasn't ready for pro hockey and wanted the sheltered environs of college. A degree is nice but lets be real if you dream of being a pro hockey player what better route to take then pro hockey. He's two years away if he's ready at all kid is showing bust potential . Reminds me a lot o a Ryan Leaf or Drew Henson . Can't miss size and appeal but missing something .
