There is quite a margin of difference between supposed 3rd line checkers like these, and ones like Kelly Buchburger or Chad Kilger, who can play a role like that, but are relegated to 4th line duty.
My bad, I was implying guys that could be acquired for a mid round pick or a 2nd tier prospect (mostly guys on non-playoff teams that will be UFA this summer). Like Matt Cooke is a good role player, but Vancouver has no motivation to move him at this point. Likewise San Jose with Thornton.
