A lot of players for some reason come here in the last 5 to 6 years and they seem to not be able to score anymore.

Why is that.
Occams razor deduction is that Belanger can't score because of Belanger. He has absolutely no confidence with the puck.

Theres not a person here that thought he was going to score on a home free breakaway. This being an NHL veteran forward.

Most guys would have some kind of moxie in that situation. Belanger don't, and thats on Belanger to get over. We could use more contribution from him.

The opposite of your bolded deduction is Jones who has scored more here than anywhere else.
