Bingo. If a player is on the bubble and he has proven chemistry with a player who will make the team, this should be a huge factor in selecting the team. For whatever reason it seems like a lot of the time this gets overlooked.
I'm not sure where you are going with that seeing as the tried the chemistry part in 2010, the first year of the losing streak.
Bringing someone who deserves to be there, who has chemistry with someone, like Drouin, is not the same as bringing someone for "Chemistry", like with Henrique (was not deserving "at the time" over others) and Nemisz in 2010. Sure, they had Chemistry with Hall playing together in Windsor, but that didn't mean anything once the tournament started, which we found out quickly.
These are not rec league players, they know how to play off of each other, and 3 weeks is enough time for these players to gel.
