This from Jack Michaels of the Oilers on the forward lines:My takeI’m not a huge fan of Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl on the same line because a) both players are pushed to do the most and able to do the most when they’re at centre on their own lines b) both players get too fancy when they’re together, looking to pass the puck too many times to each other, sometimes passing up great scoring chances in the hunt for greater scoring chances c) the team has better overall balance when they’re apart d) Ryan Nugent Hopkins isn’t playing strong two way hockey right now in a second line role; he’s leaking scoring chances against with poor inner slot coverage and would be better off on the wing with McDavid or Draisaitl as his centre. So far this year, RNH has made 13 major mistakes on Grade A scoring chances against. 1.5 per game.
