Can a pecan pie made with maple syrup in place of corn syrup still have that same wonderful gooey glory?

Can a pecan pie made with maple syrup in place of corn syrup still have that same wonderful gooey glory? Curious to try Merrill's recipe, but my husband is skeptical that the corn syrup holds the key to all that gooey goodness in the traditional pecan pie.

The texture is less viscous, to be sure -- but the flavor is divine!

I wonder how it would be if you used both? Best of both worlds?

I make my pecan pie every year with maple syrup in place of corn syrup (husband is allergic to corn), and everyone loves it and really can't tell the difference. ATK did an article on the difference awhile back and sided with maple syrup and molasses. Here's the recipe: http://www.kcet.org/living/food/the-public-kitchen/thanksgiving-recipe-old-fashioned-pecan-pie.html
