Starting him up on 3rd line would be best. I'd rather give Leblanc a shot on the top 6. He's had the chance before and did decently well.
That would be a great 3rd line, but our top 6 would be weakened. With that 3rd line, this would likely be the top-9:

Pacioretty - Desharnais - Cole
Bourque? - Plekanec - Leblanc
Galchenyuk - Eller - Gionta

If that's the case, Eller's line actually becomes the 2nd line and Plekanec continues to play with muckers. I don't disagree with Gally starting on the third line, but at the same time, the team really needs him to add some oomph to the top-6. That said, if it was possible to upgrade on Bourque in the above scenario, those lines would look a lot better.
