With as productively wild as Kaner is, you need solid 2 way guys who know NHL positioning and can back check when the puck goes the other way.

Best player available isn't always the best player for the hole in the lineup.
You do realize Q is changing lines in the middle of the game. That can happen to anyone on the team. And Kane turns it over at the blue line relentlessly and having Sharp and Bollie there hasn't stopped the odd man breaks against that line. I understand your point but by your logic we need more Johnsons/Mayers that backcheck yet have limited ability to score....on the 2nd line.
