Match Wits with Anderssen

This position arose in Anderssen -- Von der Lasa, Berlin 1851.

White to move

Adolf Anderssen played 9.Nf2, which seems sensible and sound. I wonder, however, whether he considered 9.d4. Is this position a good one for contemplating the sacrifice of a knight?

I am preparing some notes on this game, as well as several others, for my Dragon Chess Camp.
