With the start of another season rumors are once again on the rise about a potential trade involving the Blue Jackets Zherdev. Zherdev is a highly skilled youngster who has turned heads with his play and turned people off with contract disputes and inconsistent play.
Reports on tsn.ca are speculating that the sale to a local group in Nashville is about to fall apart. Of interest is that the local group was going to keep the team in Nashville and that they were looking for tax breaks to do so.

This would mean that Bell is eligible to return on Nov. 6 against Ottawa.
