No, but a +15 at least indicates he's scoring (or at minimum contributing to scoring). I'm just saying that Belanger is either a poor man's Ribeiro (if he's a defensive liability), or a poor man's Bonk (if he's defensively adept), and either way I'm not interested. Ribeiro for Selke would be funny, though.
