I don't mind a little arrogance, personally. A lot of elite players carry that label. Arrogant, aloof, self-absorbed, etc. As long as your play backs it up, fine with me.

Brandon Dubinsky was a guy that a lot of people labeled as arrogant. I think it actually served his style well. I'm with you--Bell is worth a pick.
