The only knock on him I've read about was that he doesn't position too well in his own zone, and doesn't keep his man out of the play as well as he should with his reasonably-sized body. Presumably, those are things that can be improved with a concentrated effort and coaching.
He's young, fairly big, strong and has good wheels and a good shot and offensive sense. From what I saw of Sydor on Dallas last season, I think I'd rather try out the kid.
Bell kind of is offensive-minded, but he's been given so few opportunities to show what he is that it's difficult to tell what he really is after a few years of mishandling. I'm not sure what type he really is.
