On the other hand, I think yours is a good point also...having two rushing defensemen will make it harder for opponents to key on either of them individually.

I find it hard to believe anyone would try to pass of Joliat as large...Are you sure he just wasn't saying that Joliat is larger than his real life height and weight?
I think issues like this are not looked upon as highly as they should be in the ATD. Having a partner like Grant allows more room for Kelly to operate and vice versa, if teams could game plan against stopping Red Kelly from rushing the puck because his partner is no offensive threat at all that would be a large disadvantage to him.

Just so it's clear, I plan on using Kelly-Grant against top lines, and the game plan is too have a strong counter attack to force offensive players to perhaps play a little more cautiously in the offensive end.
