Spoiler alert: they will squander that opportunity.

Even Gretzky needed a Kurri on his line to produce
You must be young.

Actually Gretzky could produce with pretty much anybody. You're using the worst possible example to demonstrate your point. Dave Semenko scored an NHL hat trick playing on a line with Wayne Gretzky. When Blair Mcdonald famously wanted to re-up his contract after scoring a bunch of goals playing with Wayne the first NHL season Sather quipped: "So what, a fire hydrant could score 40 goals playing with Wayne Gretzky" Callighen's play was greatly elevated as well.

Wayne could produce with a lot of players. Jarri just happened to be the most complimentary player.
