Pool News

Eric Belanger and Oleg Tverdovsky were the first players to be moved on the sheet and the season hasn't even started yet. Belanger, listed as a Los Angeles King forward, was traded to the Carolina Hurricanes in a deal which saw defenseman Tverdovsky go the other way. Defenseman Tim Gleason joined Belanger on the way to Carolina and future pool player, Jack Johnson also made the trip to California.

Back-up goalie in Box 12, Ty Conklin, was shipped to the minors on Friday. He wasn't able to make the cut with the Blue Jackets and will see some time in the minors until he is either dealt or there is some injury in the Columbus line-up for a mid-season call up.

Box 20 forward, Mike Riberio was dealt from the Canadiens to the Dallas Stars on Friday. The center will move over to the Western Conference and will play underneath guys like Mike Modano and Eric Lindros and should pick up some more offensive talent. Something to be considered if you are still picking your team.
