I live in Chicago, and get to see Mark Bell play a lot. I'm also a huge fan of Morrow, so the biases hopefully cancel out.

I'd take Bell if you're looking long term. When he's on the ice with other skilled players, he produces. Unfortunately, the Hawks only have 4 skilled players currently (Daze, Arnason, Ruutu, & Bell), and Bell is the odd man out playing with grinders.

If you asked this before this year, I would of said Morrow, but Bell has really impressed me this year. I really like Morrow, but I think he lacks the natural offensive ability to get beyond 60 pt/year. Add in he's a couple of years older, and plays with a TON more talent (Modano, Guerin, etc) and I think it's pretty easy to take Bell.
