Dawes for the fact that Anisimov probably does not have much of a future with the Rangers unless he adapts to wing. with our current depth at center the best he could hope for is 4th line duties after Betts, possibly battling Dubi for 3rd line, but not likely to surpass him.
again, add Pyatt!
AA for me
The fact that we have long term depth at center doesnt diminish his value. He could fetch a nice return and even knock one of our current centers like Dubi or Drury to the wing. He has a ton of development left, he is only 19.

Is this supposed to be a 'who is our best prospect' poll?
Cherepanov (W) - slam dunk top 6 forward with proper strength and conditioning program.
Sanguinetti (D) - slam dunk PP QB
Montoya (G) - biggest trade chip
Anisimov (C) - potential future #2 center
Sauer (D) - potential top 4 D
Baranka (D) - potential 5th or 6th D
Hillier (W) - young. potential. having a big year
Zaborsky (W) - young. potential. having a big year
Wiikman (G) - potential backup NHL/ sure #1 AHL netminder
Moore (W) - potential 4th liner. 3rd liner at most. Pyatt (C) - future NHL 4th line center due to well above average defensive and hockey smarts. Tremendous work ethic. Like Betts, except smaller.
Dupont (C) - still young. Future remains to be determined.
Korpikoski & Bourret (W) - future 4th liners at most/ career AHL
Parenteau (W) - late bloomer?
I don't count anyone that is currently on the NHL roster as a prospect.
Dawes sticks this time and is a full time NHL player. Dubinsky is a full time NHL player. Callahan is on the verge of becoming a fringe NHL player/AHL player. Jessiman is still a good kid with good work ethic, but still a bust considering his draft position.
