I like it too, but Kassian may be a better fit on the third tough minutes line than Puljujarvi.

Maroon - McDavid - Strome
Lucic - Draisaitl - Slepyshev/Puljujarvi
Jokinen - RNH - Kassian
Caggiula - Letestu - Puljujarvi/Slepyshev

RNH is a poor fit for the top two lines due to his lack of a cycle game, and he's not a good enough shooter to play on McDavid's wing.

If McDavid is putting up 82 assists next year, I imagine his linemates would put up more than 29 and 17 goals respectively.

I think Pulju needs good forwards around him and the 4th line is not the place for him. There's a great chance that would slowly turn him into a defensive forward, and that would be such a waste of potential. I'm afraid that if Pulju plays with non-offensive players he'll end up shooting desperately from every chance (he's already done that a bit too much at times, though that's also created some good chances) and may lose his self-confidence. So either give him good enough line mates or keep him in AHL or trade him away, that's how I see it.

As for Drai, I would at least try to make the lines work so that he'd be 2C. If that works it'll make the team better and it's probably easier to find forwards around McDavid than to make the 2nd line work very well without a world class center. You can always change that later on if really needed.
