It worked. No doubt that it did work and made a difference that year.

As for the present... Belak has become a waste of a roster spot since he is always scratched. Not really his fault per say, but it's getting ridiculous for all parties involved.
Thank you. 21 total shifts this year. And of course the DET game where he dressed, but didn't play.....

I'm on board with an enforcer (even in the "new" NHL), but for those who said his main contribution was his locker room presence (including Poile), what say you now? Alot of people defended his being on this team, but do we really need a jester/pseudo glueman/mediocre pugilist? I still can't fathom the logic behind this guy being on the team which leaves the Preds one more skill guy short of the rest of the league. I think it's symptomatic of Poile and crew's flawed analysis of this team "...I like this team's makeup..." who obviously can't see that this team needs everything BUT what Belak supposedly brings.
