If you look up "3rd line center" in the dictionary Frans Nielson is the definition. Solid facoff man, outstanding PKer, able to put up ~40 points, amazing defensively, leadership skills(has worn the "A")+ as an added bonus he is one of the best all-time shootout men since its introduction to the game.
I don't see a 3rd liner worth an early second. Even if he is a good one.
