He succeeded and excelled there. He said himself that it helped his game.

You are objectively wrong. The reason why his 'offense took a hit' in his transition from AHL to NHL is that Anisimov doesn't really have the tools to be anything more than a 50-60 point player, if that. He's an average skater, not a very good playmaker, and he has a slow release. I'm a fan of him, but really, he's nothing all too special. A solid 2nd/3rd liner.
