Screen capture of the new header (missing Trenton and Wheeling

What does this mean for Wheeling? They are advertising season tickets for the 2013-14 season but so were the Trenton Titans.

Utah Grizzlies missing too.

Compare the teams along the top from both websites:

http://echl.com/
http://echl.com/team-map-s12363


I think someone tried to delete Trenton, and botched the update.

*edit* Then again, those three are also missing from the team directory page.
http://echl.com/directory-s12360

Still think someone just got over zealous with the delete key.

Also interesting... I didn't notice Utah but I can't see them folding considering they had the best average attendance in their ECHL history this past season. My only guess would be that someone would be moving their AHL team to Salt Lake City? Who knows, it was probably just an error.

A tweet from David foley announcer for the gladiators

@gladsfoley: @GentilECHL @JGKomets I doubt either of those teams are going anywhere. Probably a mistake. Utah is fine and Wheeling is upgrading WesBanco.

I sure hope this is true! But it just seems like too much info to accidentally delete. Reminds me a lot of what the CHL did a couple years ago changing the team map in the middle of the night.

Haha never heard about that CHL thing. That's hilarious! I can see them being deleted in the header but not the team directory. What more does the Glads announcer know than we do? I really do not know what to say. You would think they'd have it fixed by now if it was an error.

Utah and Wheeling missing from the banner and directory...but then I checked a random page (Chris Clackson's Alaska player page) and both show up on the banner. Trenton isn't there.

FWIW Trenton, Utah, and Wheeling are the last names alphabetically in the league.

Foley doesn't count for much. He is their away announcer but he does Gwinnett Braves in the summer so I on't think he's all in. Eventhough he no longer travels...Dustin Bixby would likely be a better source. Can't speak for Utah but an upgrade to WesBanco shouldn't mean much, long over due. Wheelings attendance is pretty bad though for what it's worth

Wheeling website is still working and has a banner page for 2013-14 season tickets, so i'm guess this is just an error...though it is weird the teams in question are also missing from the team directory.

Well since it seems like this was a mistake, I'm closing this up.
