Use tube to drain wort to brew kettle?

I read a comment on /r/homebrewing today saying that it's advisable to use a tube to drain pre-boil wort to a kettle to minimize oxidation. My understanding is that oxidation is not a concern...

That's the same one I used. Works awesome and doesn't require any reinforcement. It was a bit of bitch to slip the braid off the rubber hose inside though. I believe I used a 3/4" brass nut to cap...
