Skidding out of control

When you saw warm-ups today you noticed two things.
You were glad to see David Laliberte back with the team and then you noticed that you threw up all over yourself when you saw that our two goalies were Ray Jean and Billy Higgins. Or as they're known in hockey circles...
Billy Jean

Well they say that hindsight is 20/20 my friend. So who would've thought that two trades would come back to haunt us this very moment? When we traded Jason Tejchma and Terry Denike we were stacked in net and we were pretty set offensively. Tejchma has 12 points in 14 games with the Mississippi Sea Wolves right now and Denike is the go-to-guy in Reading with a 2-0 record.

To quote Lloyd Christmas,
"We're in a hole, we just need to dig ourselves out."

Word out of Pittsburgh is that Marc-Andre Fleury will miss two-to-four weeks with his ankle injury. This means that Dany Sabourin will carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders for a little while, while John Curry and Dave Brown do the same in Wilkes-Barre. That being said... Martin Houle cannot come back fast enough from a groin injury. There's only one person who can help us now...
Barring the second coming, we're in serious trouble.

Since Lane Manson's retirement, the Nailers have won a grand total of two games.

Francios Leroux is a minus-7 and he looks gassed every time he comes off of the ice.

Frustration's setting in. Nothing is going right lately. Nothing.
So we're changing things up here at Nailer News. While others may go green, but we're going black with a new site look to help get outta this funk. Anything helps. Right?
