He doesn't even have to return to being a 10-15 goal/35-40 point player. We just can't see the Belanger Triangle again.
How was the best defensive forward on our team unworthy of playing in the NHL last season?
From 2008 to last season, most people on here recognized that our biggest need was a player who could win a faceoff and kill penalties. Belanger did both of those things excellently last season. Any offence from Belanger is just an added bonus to his actual role. We shouldn't base our opinions of him on offensive production.
