Hey guys, just a quick note to let you know that this is your last chance to trade players (2 max) from your team in the HTR Hockey Pool.
go inside for all the details

According to Eklund at HockeyBuzz, Ilya Bryzgalov has signed a 3-year extension with the Coyotes.
terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Mike Richards is close to signing a deal with the Flyers. Rumor is the deal is a massive contract in terms of years, possibly over 10. Also rumored to be between $5.5-$6 million per year. This signing is a must! The longer the better. And Richards deserves every penny. Holmgren is denying a deal is “done”, but apparently there is just a few legal technicalities to work out.
GM Peter Chiarelli provided an update on Patrice Bergeron, who suffered a Grade 3 concussion six days ago when Philadelphia defenseman Randy Jones belted him into the TD Banknorth Garden boards.
“He could be out a month. He could be out two months. He could be out a year,” Chiarelli said.
sources are reporting that Jason Spezza has signed a 7yr $49mil extension with a provisional no trade clause.
Spezza will be paid 8M$ for the first 5 season and then 5M$ and 4M$ for the last two.
He will have a 7M$ cap hit on the Sens cap.
The Buffalo Sabres have come to terms with unrestricted free agent Nolan Pratt. The 32 year old defenseman came off a good season with the Lightning last year collecting 8 points in 81 games. He is a very solid defenseman, but has very few offensive characteristics. He will suit the Sabres penalty kill.
The Los Angeles Kings have 4 goaltenders capable of playing NHL games, but none capable of doing it well…
Marc-Andre Bergeron has been a healthy scratch for the Islanders in their last two games. Looks like Bryan Berard has taken over the PP. But why sit Bergeron? Anyone hear anything?
Okay, due to uncontrollable circumstances I could not be there yesterday to send links to the last members who wanted to join so I decided to extend the deadline to join the pool.
HOWEVER, this extension is only for those who already asked to join.
So if you already asked to join the pool, CHECK YOUR PM’s. You have up until tonight (Sept. 30) 11pm Eastern Time before the pool is closed.
Go inside to see who already received his PM but did not make his picks yet.
The Penguins pared their roster to 27 with their latest cuts, including sending Angelo Esposito back to his junior club.
With 20 players an almost definite to make the team, this leaves 3 spots up for grabs for: Ryan Stone, Tim Brent, Jonathan Filewich, Adam Hall on offense and Kris Letang, Mike Weaver and Alain Nasreddine on defense.
With Conklin being sent back, the goaltending tandem of Fleury-Sabourin is assured.
Take a deeper look for probable opening day lineups.
The Gazette has released what looks to be like the final lines for this upcoming season. Although they may change, these are the most likely lines.
