But there were definitely some moments early on where he clicked with the second line and looked like he and Kesler could work up some potential for chemistry. He wasn't exactly doing nothing when the AMEX line was firing on all cylinders. At some point, Kesler's going to have get better to, and who knows how that will effect Booth's play.
I actually think that so far, he's shown the most chemistry with Higgins and Hodgson, so maybe adding a puck distributor would help him.
That's a fair enough assessment.
