I haven't been able to watch many games but how come two so great players don't work together? I mean on the paper, they're the perfect fit...
Early on, no one wanted to be the "finisher". Kariya, Forsberg, and Erat all tried to be playmakers. So, pass, pass, pass, and oh lookie, the other team skates down the ice with the puck....
Lately, Kariya and Forsberg (when playing together) have been gripping the stick a little too tightly (as evidenced by ringing 5 shots off the post in a previous game).
I love seeing Forsberg play with Radulov and Kariya playing with Legwand. Much better chemistry.
