I'm not a big fan of Belanger. Sure he makes pretty goals but the guy is capped out at potential as a 3rd liner. Why do we need someone like him taking up a spot in the lineup when we can have a youngster playing. We have a lot of youth who are getting ready to come up to the NHL, the best way to ease them in is through 3rd line minutes where we're not so dependent on their production.

I know Belanger is doin real well right now and the rules did in fact benefit him a lot, but I still dont see a reason to keep him along for that much longer. One day we're goin to need to make room for Tukonen and Tambellini fulltime, by default, people who have the least potential have gota go. Belanger, unfortunately, is one of the handful who are the odd men out.
