There was no way we were going to tender these guys when they were RFA's, which was this past offseason in case anyone forgot, I'm not sure why everyone brings them up everytime they score a freaking goal.
I agree, however, I do believe that guys like Avery and Callahan are cut out for third line roles. They fit that mold.

I think what tends to happen is that people assume because a player wasn't good enough for a top six spot, that they can just slide into a third line slot.

Guys like Avery and Callahan are good third line players. They are built to play that kind of role. That's ideally what you want on the third line, not necessarily guys who just weren't good enough to play on the top two lines.
