VAN - Lapierre/Malhotra
STL - Sobotka/Nichol
PHX - Gordon/Langkow/Chipchura
NSH - Gaustad/Spaling
DET - Filppula/Abdelkader/Emmerton
CHI - Kruger/Bollig/Morrison
SJS - Handzus/Dejardins/Moore
LAK - Stoll/Fraser

Belanger is probably among the lower half of those #3s, but I'd put him up against every single one of the #4s. I'd also love a Bolland player for the 3rd line, just as I'm sure the Blackhawks would, but he was their #2C once they smartened up and put Kane back at RW.
