Our D is possibly the best in the league atm, imo.

What is being overlooked is that a stud on the order of Kane, who can help the team not merely compete but dominate (especially on a physically big line). If Canes would prefer to move for big enough overpay, it is reasonable to ask people recognize it is much harder to acquire a guy like Kane, than eventually replace your 2 top defensemen,including in the meantime by adding depth to the backline group w/likes of Olsen, Martinez.

Everybody is focused on nominal gains, e.g. picking up Pyatt v. Fedotenko; I agree to do that whenever that opportunity presents itself.

But don't also be afraid, as I am suggesting to take a step backwards in order to go forwards.

Also, even if this line and not a higher one, you are missing part of the point. These are three heavy duty offensive lines that can press, with intensity, pausing only to have the opposition besieged by a solid checking 4th line, that might also surprise with Hagelin breakaways.
