I didn't see this coming. Now, let's see what Florida can do with him.

When I heard Janssen had gone to St. Louis the first thing I said to my roommate was "if he was on the market, why the hell didn't Florida or Montreal pick him up?!"

Well I guess we have an answer as to why Florida didn't get him! Good move to pick up Belak, hopefully he plays.

No

He can play a 4th line role, he can fight, but he's also a character guy. I'll miss all those great interviews.

sounds like Brookbank, Brashear, and the rest of the Southeast guys have a new buddy. I think it may be too little too late for Florida.

Panthers need some toughness and they need to sell some tickets. They've got a lot of home games coming up. The Leafs can always re-sign him in the summer if they want to. They don't play him anyways.

Who's going to fight for Toronto now? Tucker? LOL !

Please, Fletch, pick up someone who's willing and able. Otherwise, I'm really disappointed.
