I don't want to break that down but that's something like 4 to 5 games, again two years ago. I see no harm in testing their chemistry again.

1.41% is from http://www.leftwinglock.com/line-com...gametype=ALL#A
I think part of them not even trying them together is because one of them would have to change their game big time. You can't just tell two players to go on the ice and do whatever they want (aside from Crosby/Malkin or Datsyuk/Zetterburg etc) so within their skill sets, what kind of game plan do you come up with for them? Now in addition to considering both Kessel and Grabo's somewhat narrow skill sets, you also have to factor in Carlyle's very stubborn coaching style.
