There is no need to have two checking lines when you are the deepest nation for skill in the tournament. Force other teams to defend against our strength.
This.

I'm very happy we have a skilled/faster team going into this tournament on a larger ice surface. Guys like Tom Wilson serve a purpose, but their strengths are neutralized on a larger ice surface and thus are rendered ineffective. Going with MacKinnon and Drouin will give us 3 scoring lines, and we have one hell of a checking line that can also score on you. I really really like this team.
