Artem Anisimov

Let me say right off the bat that I'm an Anisimov fan, and I'm pleased with the strides that he made this year.

However, that being said, I think it's worth exploring what Sather can get for him on the trade market. He's a solid player on both ends, but I think he's a little too soft and slow to become a consistent top-6 player. He gets knocked off the puck too easily for a guy his size, he still hasn't quite learned to keep his head up, and while he has a good shot, he takes way too long to get it off.

Bottom line is that I think his value is never going to be higher, and with a real lack of true top-line talent on the team, I think packaging Anisimov and a couple other assets for a real stud offensive player would benefit us in the long run.

Thoughts?

I don't necessarily have a problem with offering AA in the right deal. In my mind, Stepan is a better option for 2nd line center, and Boyle, to me, looks like a legit 3rd line center. While I don't think Boyle will be a consistent 20 goal-scorer, I can see him reaching 15 goals on a fairly consistent basis. In my mind, right now, Artie's in between Stepan and Boyle in terms of upside. If the Rangers do sign Richards, you have a surplus at center, which can be used to address other needs. And, you can replace Artie in the upcoming draft.

Move AA if it's part of a deal that will make this team a contender.

Otherwise, pass.

Everyone is tradeable.

I think something the Rangers should consider is moving AA and MDZ+ to Dallas for Loui Eriksson.

There is a the familiarity with Richards and a top line of Gaborik - Richards - Eriksson is DEADLY.

Well duh, obviously. If Detroit were to offer us Datsyuk and Zetterberg for Lundqvist I'd do it. My point is that I don't think Anisimov is going to get much better than he is now, and that he should be someone to actively shop rather than just be willing to trade if we're bowled over with an offer.

Why is Dallas even considering that?

LOL that's why I added the plus, maybe should have added the ++++++++

I know Dallas wouldn't take it but I really want Eriksson on the Rangers, in some shape or form.

I was disappointed in Artie's progress this year. He got some good long looks on the top two lines and never really proved he belonged.

I was pretty excited when he lit it up in preseason last year, but the promise has gone unfulfilled. Nice third line player with some upside to maybe a second liner, but he is a guy that can be dangled in a trade to get some front end offensive talent.

Hate to give up on the homegrown talent, but I wish there was more intensity there.

if we sign richards and keep anisimov, he becomes our 3rd line center more than likely, i role which i think he will fit nicely.

I believe Arty would stay as our 2nd line center (because of the chemistry with Cally and Dubi) and Stepan would fall to the 3rd line because his line of Wolski and MZA had some chemistry at times.

Guess it could play out either way. On one hand those three clicked this season, on the other Stepan has more offensive potential and Arty seems like he would fit better on a shutdown line. Guess we'll see how it plays out

For the right return, fine. But to talk about him as if he's where he'll be for his career right now is ridiculous.

He definitely needs to work on his faceoffs in the off season.

I've said it before and gotten alot of **** for it, he's a good defensive player no doubting that and the offense comes in spurts but with the centers we currently have an possibly coming soon if he is going to become our third line center he should be moved because to me he's worth MUCH MUCH more trade value wise than a third line center. Thas just my opinion.


And like people have said anyones tradeable for the right price, that erikkson proposal above is laughable tho.

Only thing he is good for. If you are going to pay for a faceoff specialist, you better pay big or go home

What would you say Artie and our 2 2nd round picks would get us in the draft? to have 2 top 15 picks this year would be sweet!
