The two main things he was brought in to do (faceoffs and PK), I think he did an excellent job at. Unfortunately, zero of the offense he managed over his career ever materialized. And with MacT's comment about players having to be at least marginally a threat to score, it was clear Belanger wasn't going to be here much longer.

Still, I think a compliance buyout might be a waste on a player who's only got 1 year left at a cap hit of under $2M. I would've just buried him in the minors and taken the ~$900K (or whatever it is) cap penalty or used a regular buyout and carried the $500K or so for the next 2 seasons.
