All are younger, have lower cap hits, and are better at faceoffs. Second of all, while his AAV is reasonable (which is arguable, but just for this I'll say it is), it is for two more years, and many teams need to sign guys next year (including us) so they can't take his cap on. I'm a Hawks fan, but a realistic one, and Anisimov isn't that valuable an asset. If he was, he would be long gone.</div></div>
Every single one of those guys makes more in salary than Anisimov in the last 2 years of this contract. In fact even Danault who is signed at an AAV of almost 1.5M less makes more in salary than Anisimov.
And lets take a look at what one of those players was just trade for...
Nazim Kadri + 3rd for Tyson Barrie (50% retained) AND Alexander Kerfoot.
Granted I can recognize Kardi is a better overall player than Anisimov. I will not dispute that, but to further put this into context, this was after only a 16 goal, 44 point year from Kadri who played on a great Leafs team. He plays no PK, and plays more PP time. In fact Anisimov had more even strength points that Kardi last year.
Saying Anisimov is worth only a 4th isn't exactly realistic.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>DonkeyLips</b></div><div>Seems like Chicago fans need to calm down. It doesn't matter who their gm is. It doesn't matter what players they trade. It doesn't matter what players they sign. There is not a single thing any human being can do that will make any difference. This team is done for. You all just need to accept that. The Chicago Blackhawks "dynasty" is over before it even started. They have no hope of making the playoffs or even being close to competitive as long as they have Jonathan "Mr. Me" Toews as their captain. He is the worst leader, player, and human being to ever be associated with the NHL. Even worse than Billy tibbits, and that guy went to jail for raping a minor. Toews is the most selfish, arrogant, piss poor excuse for a hockey player I have ever seen. He skates slow to the bench, soft as ever, can't shoot the puck, couldn't make a pass to save his life. Does he know he is allowed to play a little defense every now and then? When's the last time he even won a face off? Worst of all, he can't even grow a proper beard. Jonathan Toews is pathetic and so are the Chicago Blackhawks.</div></div>
This is one of the poorest attempts at trolling that I’ve ever seen. Take an L, bud.
