I think Film 2 can make use of those 17 years in more ways than we can imagine. I mean, the whole of Film 2 can essentially be ONLY those 17 years, depicting the events narrated at the Council of Elrond (with of course relevant flashbacks to the 60 years between The Hobbit and LOTR).

I can actually now imagine Film 2 beginning with the scene with Gandalf telling Frodo "Keep it secret, keep it safe" and then:
  • Riding out from the Shire to find out about the Ring
  • Meet with Denethor, maybe see him use the Palantir, and maybe get a glimpse of young Boromir and Faramir (oooh, and have Gandalf tell them some tales of Middle-earth's history too Smile)
  • Have Aragorn track Gollum
  • Visit with Thranduil for something just so we get to see the Mirkwood elves post-Hobbit Crazy
  • Have the Rangers watch over the Shire
  • Meet Elrond and Galadriel somewhere inbetween
  • Show the Black Riders at the Lonely Mountain asking for news of a certain "Baggins". Oh, the film can actually show the Battle of Osgiliath that we see in TTT's flashback - the battle where the Black Riders force the Bridge of Osgiliath and begin the hunt for the Ring, following which Boromir rides out for Rivendell.
How cool would it be to actually see Boromir and Faramir's dream? "In that dream I thought the eastern sky grew dark and there was a growing thunder, but in the West, a pale light lingered, and out of it I heard a voice..." It could be a very dramatic scene, with an ominous voice crying out...

Seek for the Sword that was broken
In Imladris it dwells;
There shall be councels taken
Stronger than Morgul-spells.
There shall be shown a token
That Doom is near at hand,
For Isuldur's Bane shall waken,
And the halfling forth shall stand.

In fact, now that I think about it, I think those 17 years right there comprise a pretty solid storyline for Film 2 Blush

Crows and Gibbets! What is The House Of Eorl but a thatched barn where brigands drink in the reek, and their brats roll around on the floor with their dogs! You are but a lesser son of greater Sires.
