Lets stay out of the basement.

With the basement looming, the Nailers have been busy tending to their depleted roster. There will be more new faces than Michael Jackson this weekend.
"weee heeee"

Former Wheeling Nailer/Thunderbird, Vadim "The Russian Rocket" Slivchenko will be suiting up for the Nailers by the end of this week, as his paperwork finally went through. Even though Vadim's 37 years of age, he's still faster than most of the players in the ECHL. He played 51 games in Germany last season for Crimmitschau ETC where he led the team in scoring with 39 points (17G,22A). It's good to have the rocket back. Hopefully he can add some scoring to our Nicole Ritchie like offense.
The Nailers have also signed rookie forward Joe Santilli. Santilli is in his senior year of college at Northeastern University. In 17 games played so far he has 11 points 2G,9A). Last season with Northeastern, he had nine points on five goals and four assists in 20 games played.

Wheeling also claimed goalie Nathan Marsters off of waivers from Augusta. Masters has spent time in the AHL for Portland going 2-3 in 5 games last season in the AHL. He was a victim of a numbers crunch as the Anaheim Ducks have too many goalies under contract in their system. Marsters was 4-3-2 for the Lynx.
