He can play very occasionally and hit people when he's out there with out sacrificing too much defense.
What is that role, again? 4 or 5 staged WWE style fights a season? Oh, right, he's the "bodyguard," and no one takes cheap shots because they know their goon may have to fight ours.

Belak neither hits nor plays anything resembling defense. He did get a great view of one of the Blues' goals tonight, though.

Halischuk may only get minimal icetime..but no one seems concerned with Colin Wilson getting the same treatment at the moment. At least when MH is out there, something positive might happen. Belak is like...a black hole. Negative momentum.
