Columbus trades Pascal Pelletier to St. Louis for Brendan Bell and Tomas Kana

http://blog.dispatch.com/cbj/2009/12/minor_deals.shtml

Haven't heard much in the AHL so I don't know if this a good deal or not...

Mods Edit.

As for the trade...Pretty solid move for Syracuse. (although I'm sure they'll find something to ***** about) Their blueline wasn't doing that well from the sound of things, and this certainly shores it up.

Howson hates Syracuse.

I thought Pelletier was that bike ride thing to raise money for cancer research.

Anyway, I've heard the d-man's name before. More organ-eye-zational depth.

I knew I had heard of Brendan Bell before, just couldn't remember which jerseys he wore (Toronto, Phoenix, Ottawa, STL system). 17 points in 22 games this year for a defenseman, eh?

This is an AHL deal and that's it. I doubt we see either one of these guys in Columbus anytime soon (if ever). I don't remember much of Brendan Bell other than him sucking for the Maple Leafs a few years back. Hopefully, this helps out Syracuse in the meanwhile.

Brendan Bell played for the Senators last year and played suprisingly well (for what was expected from him). You can expect him to play well enough to slot in on a third pairing and second powerplay if he continues where he left off last year. Definately defensively suspect, gets caught not moving in his own zone. Offensively he is above average for defensemen and put up 21p in 55gp for the Sens last year in a bad year for the team.

I think this could be a good deal, both NHL and AHL-wise. Something was right with Pelletier down in Syracuse, so it's a good shake up move. Bell will give Columbus a good callup guy (God forbid something else happens injury-wise, he'd be a great option) and for Syracuse it gives a good veteran to help the very young defensive core, something Roy wasn't doing too great in Syracuse with lazy, braindead play. Bell is a great lead by example guy on and off the ice.

What I hear on Kana reminds me of a Trevor Frischmon type player. Could be a nice low-risk pickup of a former 2nd round pick.

Hello CBJ!

Kana is terrible. When he came over to North America the first time, he stuck around for a bit and then bolted for Czech Republic. He came back that next year, but has never established himself. He's got skills, but does not seem good enough to utilize those skills. There was a reason he was buried in Alaska of the ECHL.

Bell is pretty good on the offensive end although sometimes tentative at the offensive blue line, but is soft on defense.

This pretty much describes all of our defensemen, so he should fit right in.

HF's write-up about Kana seems like he might fit in well in the Jackets' organization:

Quote:
Kana is gritty and fearless and will tenaciously go after the puck in the corners all game long. His aggressive mindset and all-out effort on the ice earns him instant respect with both his coaches and teammates. Kana has also excelled on the penalty kill, regularly playing with the first unit on both 5-on-4 and 5-on-3 disadvantages. His offensive game still leaves a bit to be desired, but he has shown flashes of potential and scouts are confident he has considerable upside in that department. If he continues to develop and maximizes his potential, he could become one of those invaluable players that every team covets: the gritty guy who relishes doing the little things to help his team win hockey games.

I've never been a fan of Brendan Bell, but he should be okay at the AHL level. Hopefully he can shore up the Crunch's blueline.

Howson continues to stock up offensive defenseman, can't believe we got that much for Pelletier.

Maybe somebody should begin to think about why these guys with so much potential (Legein, Pelletier, et. al.) can't produce bupkus in Syracuse, then go on to other teams and are magically successful. (Legein's got 7 goals in 17 games since leaving the C-Bus organization.) Not saying there's a coaching problem in Syracuse, but THERE'S A COACHING PROBLEM IN SYRACUSE.

I never liked Pelletier (or Legein) to begin with, but there is NO reason he should have produced jack crap this year unless he's been injured. NONE.

Brendan Bell is actually not a bad pickup for the CBJ. I don't think he can replace what Klesla brings, but he definitely can slot in (as has been mentioned a number of times) on a third pairing, and give a viable upgrade to our powerplay unit(s).

Maybe if Stralman is a poor man's Kaberle, Bell is a poor man's Stralman?

When I saw St. Louis I thought of a different player and thought "wow, this does shake things up. Then I saw what the deal really was.

I hope Bell gets to play for The Blue Jackets and I hope he does well against St. Louis because The Blues did not give him a fair shake and buried him on the depth chart with the addition of Sydor.

And it may seem that you guys got a lot more than we did, but, for Blues management, Kana is a bust. Bell was buried behind several d-men, which was not cool, because several Blues brass courted Bell big time over the summer.

Good luck the rest of the season! I'm a big Blue Jackets fan!

Out of the box this looks like a W for the Jackets. A minor deal, but Bell should be a decent addition for Syracuse and he can fill an emergency role in the NHL.

Bell's career up to now makes it clear what he is. He is a player who is decent filler in the NHL if there are injuries, but isnt really good enough to force his way into lineup anywhere. Ottawa was an struggling team last year with a suspect defense, and Toronto was the same 3 years ago when he last had a stint with the Leafs, and he was still a healthy scratch for many many games with both those teams. On a team with a decent defense he wont ever crack the lineup barring injuries.

Howson has a pretty good record for minor trades.

Clay Wilson and Aaron Rome for Geoff Platt.
Blunden (lolz?) for Pinealt (or however you spell his name. I don't even think he's playing hockey right now)

Those are all I can actually remember, but I am sure he's gotten at least another good minor one done. LaLande for a pick? Eh, eh?

If this whole NHL thing doesn't work out for Scotty, he would dominate the AHL fer sher.
