I agree with you regarding Bell as well. He played fairly well when he played, but he wasn't given a chance to make this team. I think your "sandbagged" theory might be an accurate assumption.

Kondratiev isn't being showcased for a trade. He is staying with the leafs because he has a clause in his contact that allows him to go back to Russia if he spends 30 days in the AHL. Max is an excellent defenseman and I think people should give him a chance.

I believe Kondratiev won the spot from Carlo and one of the main reasons people think that Carlo is better than Max is because Carlo is a popular prospect from Toronto and no body even heard of Max before the summer.
