McLellan debates shuffling lines

Oilers Head Coach Todd McLellan has thought about changing up his forward lines

by Paul Gazzola /

Oilers Head Coach Todd McLellan has, for the most part, liked the complexion of his lines the past few games.

But he's thought about altering them - outside of the Milan Lucic, Jordan Eberle and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins unit.

"It's been talked about and debated a lot," said McLellan. "It's often done to get players going yet we think that we've had some good hockey out of Nuge, Ebs and Milan as a group right now."

The Oilers bench boss believes the chances are coming and that he'll most likely give this forward combination another game.

"We'll likely give this group an opportunity again. It's not for a lack of chances, certainly against Pittsburgh and some of the other teams, they're creating them, they're just not finishing them. If we were at the other end of the scale where nothing was going on, then we'd be a little more concerned."
