SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Forward Mark Bell and defenseman Christian Ehrhoff agreed to terms on contracts with the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday.

Bell, who signed a three-year deal, was acquired from the Chicago Blackhawks two weeks ago in a three-team trade that sent defenceman Tom Preissing to Ottawa.

Bell, a prime candidate to play alongside Joe Thornton and Jonathan Cheechoo on the Sharks' top line, was eligible for arbitration.

Ehrhoff, who got a two-year deal, set career highs with five goals and 18 assists last season, his second full NHL campaign. The German Olympic team member was a restricted free agent.

I guess that's what made Ekman expendable. Bell will be playing on the top line LW I suppose.

Bell-Thornton-Cheechoo, wow, what a line... and there's still the Mihalek-Marleau-Bernier to follow. They've got weapons to spare. Their blueline isn't looking too deep though, losing Preissing will hurt if they can't find a replacement for him, or at least someone to fill in one of those top 4 d-men spots.
