I don't think it's that, I think it's more the fact that they can make great plays when on the ice to each other. They both made great back door passes to each other for goals last year against the Sens and Rags, they set each other up well against Boston in at least one if not more games last year, the play that tied the game last night and I'm sure there are others. They have a natural understanding of how each other plays and their tendancies, they grew up together, no-one else on the Habs has that background to work with. I think that especially after the play last night and some of the goals they worked last year, people really want to see just how good they could be together. It's not just because of their names, it's because of what the guys in those jerseys do when they are on the ice together.
