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.
I think Prucha is built for that role too. Dawes, I'm not sure if he's just a fringe top 6 guy or what. I personally don't want him on a checking type line, he just isn't physical enough. Ortmeyer is another player that's perfect for a third line. Dominic Moore as well.
But you can only field 3. And personally, I'd prefer a mix of players on that third line. I think right now Avery-Anisimov-Callahan could be a good third line. It's a shame at least one of these guys is pretty much forced to be in the top 6.
