I just heard on NHL Live that the Rangers picked up Mark Bell. Toronto's annoying talk radio FAN590 has it on their front page right now (12:30pm) but no accredited MSM Ranger site has mentioned it and the Rangers have yet to send out a press release. EDIT - TSN now has it, thanks Kukla.
Mark Bell, if you haven't heard of him, is a drunk idiot who has spent time in jail after a hit and run while DUI. Exactly what the Rangers need to do - bring an alcoholic into New York City, where booze is available 24/7. Did the organization totally forget what happened with Sandis Bozolinch?
On the ice Bell is a big body who can't do much of anything. The Pension Plan guys looked at him a while back and showed that he can hit. He does have two 20 goal seasons in his career but that was a long time ago - well before he hit the bottle and another car. I mean look at his numbers, he is a grinding forward who eeked out some points. And, looking at his fighting record, the Rangers just picked up another Aaron Voros. We need a scorer, and Sather is wasting salary cap room on another fourth line nobody.
And Tom Renney got fired.
