The only time that EDM uses line matchups is for zone faceoffs. The few mins per game that Scheifele may go against him isnt that big of a deal. Most of the time, the lines go in order of switchoffs and we can usually play Lowry's line against him anyways.

McDavid vs Scheifele at 5v5 this year
84:31 TOI
60.84 CF%
10-2 goals (7.12 GF/60)
61.08 xGF%
68.42 HDCF%

McDavid vs Lowry at 5v5 this year
30:30 TOI
45.45 CF%
4-1 goals (7.86 GF/60)
60.20 xGF%
66.67 HDCF%

So your narrative doesn't exactly fit. McDavid spent FAR more time against Scheifele than Lowry, he scored more against Lowry per sixty and the underlying numbers were broadly similar (except CF%). From this I'm not convinced that WPG will be able to get the Lowry v McDavid matchup very often, although they should certainly try, whether Draisaitl is on his line or not. When Draisaitl is on his own line he owns Lowry at 5v5, with a 70.31 xGF%.
