Chemistry Developing In St. Louis

from the St. Louis Post-Disptach,

Tkachuk was ecstatic when the Kariya deal fell in place July 1. In six seasons with the Blues, he has had only Pavol Demitra and Bill Guerin as scoring threats on his line.

“All I’ve got to do is get (Kariya) the puck and he’ll make me a better player,” Tkachuk said. “I compare him to a Pavol Demitra ... a give-and-go kind of style, which I like. He’s got unbelievable speed, unbelievable hands. Doing those 2-on-1s, he’s always moving. He’ll definitely help me.”

Kariya, who has one goal and four assists in the preseason, said the duo is developing chemistry “right away. Keith is an unbelievable hockey player. He does so many things well. He loves to play that give-and-go style of game, and that’s a game I love to play, too, so I think it’s going to be pretty quick in terms of the chemistry.”
