News Tidbits

Nailers made a trade with the Idaho Steelheads for rookie defensemen Kelly Sullivan. Sullivan, spent 4 years playing college hockey for UMass-Lowell. He's skated in 13 games for Idaho this season. This move puzzles me a little because currently we're short on forwards. It appears that Snavely for the time being, will continue to find himself on the wing.

Coach Puhulski will join Rob Sirianni, Tommy Goebel and Nick Johnson as he has been selected to co-coach the American Conference for 2009 All Star Game along with Johnstown Chiefs coach Ian Herbers.

News on the Nailers possibly moving to Youngstown as early as next season is really starting to heat up.

Cedrick Bernier has been waived and signed with the Charlotte Checkers. David Mitchell is expected to pick up Bernier's role on the team.

Y-town has a beautiful new arena called the Chevrolet Centre,google it up. They lost CHL Steelhounds franchise after last season, have been wooing Wheeling since. Bruce Zoldan has MILLIONS so money won't be any problem. It's a shame we're talking about this instead of the dream season the Nailers are having. Where are the fans?
