Zac Dalpe, Christian Folin, and Jordan Schroeder.

Unfortunately there isn't a lick of fantasy value between these three, as they're each classic tweeners between Minnesota and AHL Iowa. Neither are likely to see any more time this postseason, save for another injury.

It'll be Zac Dalpe's job to anchor Minnesota's third line on Thursday night in Game 1 against Dallas.

Dalpe will be flanked by Chris Porter and David Jones. The 26-year-old Dalpe has just 119 games of NHL experience with four organizations, and none in the playoffs. But with Porter's ability to bang bodies, and Jones' ability to put the puck in the net, they could make some hay in the right matchup.

He has 10 goals and 20 points in 117 career NHL games with Carolina, Vancouver, and Buffalo.
