Up until this season, the same argument could've been made for Grabovski. Kessel tends to make the players he plays with better than they are and he would be a perfect playmaker if Grabovski manages to get his sniping ability back that he had from 2010 to 2012. I honestly see no harm in trying them together but it will likely never happen. They've played together sporadically during line changes and have generated speed and pressure too. Here are some goals literally scored when they were in the middle of shifting lines:

Kessel and Grabovski set up Liles.

Kessel sets up Grabovski.

Kessel and Liles set up Grabovski for an OT goal.

Kessel sets up Grabovski for an OT goal.

Kessel sets up Kulemin.
lol not a lot of grabo setups in there, #problematic #wealreadyknowphilisaplaymaker
