We miss Dubinsky's grit, but his contract was necessary to get rid of (FYI, if he magically gets amnestied by Columbus, I'd offer him a new cost-effective contract in a heartbeat).
Not saying that Sather shouldn't have made that trade, I'm saying he should have added another legitimate top-9 forward before making the trade. Guess he thought he had that in Pyatt, he thought wrong.

Anisimov is an under-appreciated player. He was streaky, but he made his mark on several games, and he was a good two-way player. Was a little soft and not too smart with the puck, though. Dubinsky is overpaid, I'm kinda glad he's gone, but, yes, they miss his fire and his strength on the puck.

Pyatt never had the wheels to play the kind of game we need to be successful, and he doesn't bring PKing and two cups to the locker room.

I'm not even complaining about losing THESE players. I'm complaining about the lack luster replacements.
