Sens fan here, looking for some information on a couple of your players.
I drafted Stepan in my fantasy league, and happened upon Anisimov in a trade. Yahoo is saying that Anisimov is going to be starting the year on the 2nd line for you guys. Is this true? Also, what line will Stepan be playing on, and who will be getting more power play time?
If anyone can provide me with some info of what you guys are expecting from them, I would greatly appreciate it.
Anisimov will likely start on the 2nd line with Dubinsky and Callahan.
Stepan will likely start on the 3rd line with either Rupp and Zuccarello or Fedotenko and Zuccarello.
Stepan will get more power play time, at least to start. Anisimov has not been a PP regular when everyone is healthy ever in his time here. Stepan remained on the PP even when slumping last season.
Watching him closely all preseason and i can see another level already.
When hes out there, he carries more of a presence and it looks like hes gotten quicker/faster along with finding better routes to the puck and net.
Hes still got room to fill out i believe, because hes still getting knocked off the puck from time to time. I think as he gets older hell add more weight and will only get better. I see big things from Arty this year and this was something I wanted to post early in the preseason, not after the past two where hes shown up.
