(I have never seen him play-- so share your thoughts.)
I think Belle could fill in for a game or two if need be and there were several injuries, Henry should get called up first and then you have a decide if you would rather bring up Weber or Carle (when Weber is back from injury of course) as it would depend on if you wanted offense cause that's something you won't get from Belle but if you just want a steady safe stay at home type then Henry then Belle would be the guys imo.
