I certainly wasn't, and much of their success was from Grossman playing fantastically well. It's no coincidence that the pair wasn't nearly as effective after Grossman's knee injury. Also, if he was playing well, it should just be another example of how frustrating a player he truly is. He's had 7 NHL seasons to figure out how to be consistent, and he simply hasn't. His month long streaks are nice to watch, but he's expected to be much more than that based on his position with the team and his salary.
