2nd line? No. 3rd? Yes but only if a team has other bigger centers who can match up against big offensive lines (which I guess STL has with Backes).

I didn't intend to make him sound useless, but he's more of a utility guy to me. Play him at 3rd line C or W, when injuries occur move him up to 2nd line for short stints. Put him on 2nd unit pk and 2nd unit pp from time to time...he's a bit of a swiss army knife and serve a lot of purposes, but he doesn't really excel at anything, and if a teams was saying "We need to upgrade at C" he's not the guy I'd recommend.
