It's a shame that nobody wants to play in Wheeling and Puhalski. You guys are going to have a long year.

Greg Puhalski isn't going to get the job done. He proved that last year with the UHL guys that did absolutely NOTHING for the team. When I heard he was brought back I wanted to puke. I don't think he has the potential or the reach to bring in some key players.
