The transaction wire page doesn't list a corresponding move, so it is a little interesting to see what happens. Maybe this means that Michael Sauer isn't healthy and they want to have a spare defenseman on the trip. I hope that isn't the case.

Update: 8:21PM: The Rangers have officially called up Brendan Bell. He is with the team in Vancouver.

The Rangers have announced that Scott Stajcer has been sent back to Owen Sound and that Brendan Bell has been sent to Connecticut.

Tim Erixon is still with the team.

Wow, this sort of surprises me. I read the email that said that Bell was sent down and realized two seconds later that it meant that Erixon was sticking around. It is a good idea for him to stick, for at least the week, so that the team can still work with him. Maybe he has a spot and Jeff Woywitka will be the spare. We should find out tomorrow.

Update: 5:27PM:
"I don't want to play GM here. You have to be real careful as far as Marc with IR. This is the type of injury with Marc that he could feel real good in another day or two and we get him going right away. It's been such a touch and go thing with Marc, that we just didn't go that way. We felt we wanted to get to our number this way."

All this really means is that they can be sent down in the next 30 days without having to pass through waivers again. It gives them options if/when Michael Sauer and Marc Staal are ready to come back.

This is how thin the New York Rangers are on defence: Nice guy Brendan Bell, who has bounced all over the place in recent years, has made the team

Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun

I think that Bell has been okay so far, certainly good enough for the 6/7th spot he will have on the team this season. Hopefully he has turned a corner in his career and can be a nice NHL player.
