The Henrique/Hall chemistry I consider to be along the lines of the so-called chemistry between Pouliot/Crosby, or even Hall/Bailey. The chemistry was there because one player is good no matter who he plays with.
Yah once again I'll say this. Many rookies have a great rookie season and then never duplicate their totals or live up to the hype. Usually these players are the ones who weren't expected to have fantastic rookie seasons but do.

I do agree though that Crosby and Hall both carried their line mates. Kovy and Parise carried Henrique but it wore off. Henrique wasn't even that good in the AHL this year based on what I saw
