What about this

Initial Creation Date: Feb. 2, 2022
Published: Feb. 2, 2022
Team: 2021-22 Edmonton Oilers
Team Explanation
Yes adding Kane means the oilers get more depth, but maybe it also gives Tippett the opportunity to leave Drai and McDavid together long term while having a competent second line with Nuge, Hyman, and Kane. That's a very very competent second line that could keep the oil not a one line team.

Let's hope tip keeps McDrai seperate. I get the chem but it's better to have multiple good lines instead of stacking the top one with Mcdavid and Drai. I think Kane is the perfect guy to have on Mcdavids line, a gritty, speedy, sniper who won't hesitate to drop the mitts or throw a huge hit. I can see him as a bodyguard for Mcdavid kinda like what Kass was supposed to be except Kanes just elite.

Ya very true, either way adding Kane to the lineup helps no matter where you play him

I agree with the person who post this, think about it when McDavid is at his best/highest performing ways is when Leon is playing with him, proof is in the numbers. I get the idea of keeping them separate to spread the scoring, but look at teams like Boston or Colorado(with the exception of this year for how well Kadri has played) they all load up their top lines and get some depth scoring from the other lines here and there. I agree with this person's post saying they have a competent 2nd line now, and whose to say Kane-RNH-Hyman wouldn't be better than what Boston has or outside of Kadri what Colorado has on their 2nd lines. You have arguably the 2 best players in the world on the top line and can absolutely dominate, but should they be shut down, that 2nd line is just as good as 75% of the leagues top lines. I'd also like to see McLeod get more mins/opportunities on the 3rd line rather than the 4th you can see the confidence in him growing game to game, so give him the 3rd line with Foegele and Kassian, use Yamamoto as trade bait for a bottom pairing LHD or packaged with Kosk to get a better goalie, bring up Holloway and have him play in the middle 6 F group to replace Kassian if need be.. Regardless this is the deepest F group(minus Yamamoto) since McDavid's arrival, now it's time to shore up the goaltending to give them a legit chance at going deeper into the playoffs..

I’d actually prefer to see the big guns together again on a consistent basis and let Kane pad his stats with them.
1- I like that it shows players everywhere we are willing to provide excellent opportunities for players looking to rebound career or boost career. Once Kane moves on maybe a guy like debrusk doesn’t get qualified and wants to come here for a year super cheap just to boost his market value.
2- I don’t like having them separated then at certain points like after a pk putting them out there together it disrupts line chemistry in my opinion.
3- I feel separating them shows a lack of trust from coaching staff that the rest of the guys can’t get the job done which I don’t believe is correct. Hyman nuge jp could be a strong second line has size speed skill and work ethic stick with it and show trust in them they will figure it out all are legit top six forwards.
