In response to the players you listed Janssen is actually not that bad of a fighter and Belak isn't scared to drop the gloves himself and provides enough on the ice to keep playing. Bochenski is still young and tore up the AHL before being traded to Boston where he played very well scoring a good amount of goals towards the end of the season. He did however fall out of favor with the coaching staff it seems though and later went to Anaheim and Nashville. Nevertheless he has some potential and has shown he is capable of performing at the NHL level. Hollweg however is nothing but a detriment to whatever club he is on.
