Metropolitsky avoided putting their name in the title so that people wouldn't think it was a joke.


I can just see it now. " Hey, what's this thread about a new ECHL affiliate called the... the Wheeling Nailers? Huh... Must be a WestIslander thread..."

Good news. I prefer having all the guys in one place then following 4 teams all around....at least it's easier to follow.

I seriously believe we have some ECHL material and especially if we go and sign 2 vets, 1 at the forward position and 1 on D.

It would make guys like Fortier, Massť, Nash and Urquhart as Wheeling material.

Here's what Wikipedia had to say about the new affiliation...

Quote:
On August 30th 2010, it was announced that Pierre Gauthier, General Manager of the Montreal Canadiens, had accidentally entered into a new affiliation with the Nailers. When asked about the incident, Pierre Gauthier explained how he had thought the Wheeling Nailers to be some form of children's entertainment venue for birthday parties.

" Wheeling Nailers? What the ****?" - Pierre Gauthier
