Belanger for now until we find a longer term solution. We need someone to provide his services, what we don't need is those services being provided while being the highest paid player on the team for the '12-13 season.

In case you've missed Katz is penny pinching on an arena deal right now, not going to look good if he continues his old ways and throws money at nothing.
He has to be above the cap floor anyway and there'd be no better powerplay on his part that to get this team to start winning and then keep beating the "we'll move card".

Play Belanger in that role in the interim until a guy like Lander is ready, or trade for/sign said player type. You might break even in real $, but it opens the ability to acquire better players or picks due to having the cap space to be creative.
