There was nothing fancy about Janssen's game. Basically, he was looking to push opponents around and maybe kick
some ass when the time was right.
That's why in both his first two seasons in New Jersey, even though he only played in just over half the games, he lead
the team in penalty minutes. An incident in 06-07 stood out where a check he dished out sent Tomas Kaberle head first
into the boards. He got suspended for 3 games for it, and his first game against the Maple Leafs since the incident, Wade
Belak gave him his receipt... a fight, not another boarding incident.
So everybody knows, his points total in Albany/Lowell wasn't that high, either. 9 points in 108 games over parts of 4
seasons. That's to go with 487 PIMs.
He had spent near the entire 07-08 season in IR with a separated shoulder after a fight in the preseason with Jesse

But there were a few that didn't. Hey, we'll gladly take him back. For a minimal 2-way contract, too.
After that one season with Nottingham, he announced his retirement.
