Bell Receiving Interest from KHL

According to the Ottawa Sun, two teams have contacted Brendan Bell's representation in hopes of sending Bell to Russia to play in the KHL. Bell, who becomes a restricted free agent on July 1, has not received any formal offers at this time. Being an Ottawa native, Bell has expressed that he wishes to stay within the Senators organization. Bell played 53 games with the big club this season, spending 15 games down in Binghamton.

The big question is whether there will be room for Bell, considering the Sens already have eight defensemen under contract who will be fighting for the six spots on the blueline next season (Phillips, Volchenkov, Kuba, Smith, Campoli, Karlsson, Picard, Lee).

What would you do with Bell?
