Both were injured for part of the year (at different times) and there was an article around somewhere that analyzed their play while the other was out. In short, they both rocked. I believe Drouin did slightly better IIRC.

I think it also covered assists to each other as well. I can't recall the details but I think the conclusion (rightly or wrongly) was that they were terrific independent of each other.

Edit: Here is the link and it's an interesting read, at least as to performance while the other was out:

The combined effort is harder to figure- both clearly helped pump the stats of the other. It's hard to know what to make of the assists without having seen them... did the assist make the goal or was it a fantastic goal that got someone a cheap assist? Who knows. The article does seem to indicate that maybe Drouin helped McK more than vice versa.
