Just like Weber isn't as good without someone carrying the puck, Blum isn't going to be as good without a physical stay-at-home type.
IMO there is no clear cut third best. Klein and Blum are prone to big defensive zone gaffes. They both play young. Bouillon is better defensively but, has not looked very good in the last two games. Hillen has good stats and is pretty consistent, but can't get out of that third pairing, so we don't know how he would look with more minutes. Laakso and Ekholm are not NHL defensemen.

So, after Suter and Weber, it is a toss up as far as I am concerned.
