Bryan Muir hopes he still has something in the tank to crack the Maple Leafs defence.

The 34-year-old, a veteran of seven different NHL teams and 97 games with the Washington Capitals the past two years, has signed a pro tryout agreement with the Leafs.

"He has some experience, we've seen him for years and we'll see what he can do here," general manager John Ferguson said.

Muir's totals with Edmonton, New Jersey, Chicago, Tampa Bay, Colorado, Los Angeles and Washington are 53 points in 279 games.

BELL RINGS IN

The suspended Mark Bell will take his medical along with the rest of the Leafs tomorrow at Ricoh Coliseum, but his participation in camp beyond that is unknown.

He is currently in Stage 2 of the NHL/NHLPA substance abuse program, a consequence of his no contest plea to a hit and run in California last year, for which he will serve jail time after this season.

"We'll get some clarification on what he can do," Ferguson said. Bell is not expected to miss any games next month.
