Are your lines listing the centres in the middle? If so, I don't think you end up getting nearly the most out of Scheifele or Drouin by playing them on their off wing/side; which looks like an unnecessary handicap considering it impacts both lines in your top 6. Don't know if it's "better", but if those are the players to work with, it seems to make more "sense" to go:

Huberdeau - RNH - Rattie/Scheifele
Drouin - MacKinnon/Scheifele - Scheifele/MacKinnon/Rattie

Huberdeau - MacKinnon - Drouin (or Drouin - Huberdeau - MacKinnon, or however we shuffle it up) on a powerplay, though? That I'd certainly do. Probably with RNH and one of the RH defensemen (Drouin or RNH on the other point for lulz?).
