I like Nielsen, but he's doesn't have enough offense for 2nd line duty and he's too small and soft for 3rd line duty. Plus, he can't win a faceoff. He's just one of those guys that can't comfortably fit a role on a thin team. But, I think he could be an asset to a team that's got enough talent to mask his inadequacies.

Right now Aucion is doing fine on the 3rd. I don't think it would be too difficult to find something comparable or better going forward for the 3rd line.
