First cut — Bell gone

Tim Pannacio of CSNphilly.com is reporting that forward try out Mark Bell has been cut by the Flyers.

Bell, a former Ranger and Blackhawk,  signed on as an early try out just weeks before training camp began.  However, soft play and being quoted as saying “a two-way contract is unacceptable to me,”  surely did not help his chances with the Flyers, who need roster flexibility.

After the three-game preseason road trip in which the team went 0-3, Flyers’ coach John Stevens made it public that he was unimpressed with Bell’s play, saying he played “Just OK.”

The cutting of Bell increases the chances that utility forward Blair Betts makes the team. The Flyers will likely begin to slim down their roster very shortly.
