Anisimov is 4C in Ottawa. NO WAY he plays 3C in Toronto.
Glendening is a healthy Scratch in Detroit. NO WAY he makes it past the marlies.
So no. No thank you.</div></div>
You are blindly downgrading the value these 2 moves bring to the leafs. Yes, the Leafs loose 2 solid, young wingers and a decent 3C. However, Anisomov has always been a solid skating defensive C, as has Glendenning, something that is sorely lacking on the Leafs. Both are expiring contracts, which is why I included the higher of the 2nds in each move.
I will agree, this AGM assumes both Robertson and Barabanov are ready to step into a top 9 role out the gate, which may be stretching it. All in all, this move gives the Leafs some cap relief, very solid depth at C and some very good draft options in a deep draft, but definitely hurts their winger depth.
