that's such a classic quote.
same goes for Alfie, same goes for Havlat, same goes for heately, same went for Hossa.

ive heard it all before. none of them are as good as their play indicates, its always due to someone else.
if anything Spezza gift wrapped half of Heatley's goals, not the other way around, and Alfie had a career year playing with Spezza. (even though he only ended up playing a small portion of the year on Spezza's wing.)

Bell has 4 full seasons + the lockout year + next season = 6

He played 13 times in 2000/01, and was a healthy scratch on 6 or 7 occasions, but he certainly wasn't on the active roster for the required 40 games (an accrued season). He was not on the active roster in Chicago for so long, he played 61 times for Norfolk that season.

Unless someone knows an exception or two to the rules, I make him RFA at the end of next season, and UFA in 2008.

Handzus is better then Bell. Bell is lazy. Handzus works night in and night out. Just because Handzus played with dislocated shoulder for about 35 in 2005 doesn't mean he is not a better player. This year numbers do not show because Handzus was hurt.
Handzus for Bell and Hawks should add a player or a pick.

Can someone familiar with Bell attest to this lack of effort talk that has come up? Is he a competitor ?

Never lack of effort, he just can't use all his tools as effectively as he should. He's a big guy that's capable defensively with a very good shot. He's decent cycling down low, he just can't pass very well and is average at best while driving to the net.

Bell is inconsistent. I think we went goal-less last year for a long stretch.

He was in a real bad funk at one point of the season and then lit it up at the end of the year.
