There are emerging tensions between Kane and Leon Draisaitl, aggravated by Kane's dissatisfaction with being on the third line. According to TSN's Ryan Rishaug, a recent heated exchange between Kane and Draisaitl on the bench has heightened concerns about team chemistry.


"We've seen that Kane hasn't been happy when he's been on the third line. I don't think there's a chemistry between him and Leon right now. I know that you watch body language and you watch the bench a lot, there was a very animated conversation two games ago between Kane and Leon on the bench."


Amidst the Oilers playoff aspirations, internal conflicts like these are unwelcomed distractions. Kane's hefty $5 million salary should be contributing to on-ice success, not off-ice drama.

Both players need to swiftly resolve their differences as the Oilers strive for postseason success.
