Belanger

Please don't play him anymore.

That is all

I would argue that Belanger has been one of Tambellini's worst signings.

He may not be the best player, but definitely far from the worst.
while Horcoff was injured he was our only C who is remotely close to 50% in the draws and he also helps our PK which is top 10 in the league...

To be fair he was billed as a guy who wins faceoffs, pks and provides scoring from the bottom 6. He was looked at universally as an excellent signing. How is it Tambellini's fault he's forgotten how to play with the puck on his stick?

Something about 20/20 something something, yeah. I liked the signing, but it hasn't panned out which is too bad.

In retrospect maybe. At the time Belanger was a center who could win faceoffs (what we needed) and he had put up 10 + goals for the previous 8 seasons (what we also needed.)

its not tambellini's fault that this guy hasn't pissed a drop of offense and treats the puck like a grenade since signing in edmonton. It's on eric to play better

Come on... I'm the biggest Smyth fan on the board, but him as our 4th line C is a massive step down from Belanger

He's fine to keep around until Lander develops.

He was signed for three years, not ten.

In retrospect, he's been a bad signing. However, I was a fan of it at the time.

I can count on 1 finger the only decent thing Belanger has done all year....and that was winning the faceoff that lead to Yakupov's goal against LA. He can't score, he can't pass, and even in the defensive/neutral zone he turns over the puck a lot. It was actually nice to see him not on the ice tonight.

This team won't compete with RNH-Gagner-Horcoff-Belanger as its four centers, especially in that division we're in next year. Going to need at least one upgrade in size on those four. Belanger and Horcoff are similar players; I feel like you need a monster in the bottom six C's.

He's on IR with a groin injury, which might explain some things, especially after coming back and playing with broken toes.

Now please close this thread, as there is nothing else to report.

It should be.

But actually...it really isn't.

The guy who won the faceoff when we won versus the Kings.

Come to think of it, he's the only one winning faceoffs...
