"We've been going in the wrong direction and that needs to stop."
Cosmo told, IL Indoor days before the dispersal draft that he had spoken with Minnesota Swarm GM John Arlotta and expressed to them that he would be honored to be selected by the Swarm however, playing back east, close to his job as a teacher, his family and new baby boy were his number one priority. "They know where I stand and they've been great so far in our discussion," said Cosmo as his Brampton Excelsiors had just put the finishing touches on game 2 of the 2011 Mann Cup in Langley, BC.
When Arlotta selected both Sanderson and Cosmo he knew he had two veteran players that had earned their stripes in the NLL and deserved what they were asking for. When both players requested trades, he immediately hit the phones talking to any GM that would answer his call but in regards to Cosmo, he "was unable to work a deal that worked for all parties involved."
So now what? "Guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens as we get closer to the season," commented Arlotta with a chuckle. Being stuck between a rock and Nike Shoes Sports 2018
Not surprisingly, as no announcement has been made Cosmo responded with "no comment" when contacted. Which is pretty typical when negotiations are on going between players, agents and teams. Rich Furlong, Cosmo's agent was unavailable for comment.
a hard place, and possibly without his top two picks from the dispersal draft, isn't exactly where he had hope to be but that's the nature of the NLL.
When the Boston Blazers announced they were closing their doors a few months before the start of the 2012 National Lacrosse League season, the remaining nine teams started licking their chops. The wealth of talent that was available was one of the richest league wide. Dan Dawson, Josh Sanderson, Casey Powell, Kyle Rubisch and Anthony Cosmo were the top five names on the Blazers 2011 roster and what team wouldn't want any of those players? Well, turns out the Minnesota Swarm were lucky enough to have two of the top picks and were in a fantastic position to improve on their second place regular season finish from last year and improve on their perennial "almost" reputation. So why, just a couple months away from the opening of training camp are many thinking, that they won't have either of their top picks on their opening day roster? After the jump, see what the buzz coming from the Hive is all about.
In the NLL, everyone from fans to GMs know that in a league where million dollar contracts are a pipedream, being close to home and their day jobs, players (especially veteran players) are more likely to request being closer to home; Cosmo and Sanderson are no different. The Swarm selected both players in the Blazers dispersal draft and while many thought 'wow, they're immediate contenders', most in the know were saying 'ok so what are they going Nike Shoes to trade for?'
There's no timeline for Cosmo Girls Nike Sneakers
There are so many choices and options available that any number of things could happen in the coming months. But what's for sure is that both sides want to work something out that will benefit both. For Arlotta that would see Cosmo wearing the blue and yellow stripes come January 2012.
But what does Cosmo want? Still young by goalie standards, he still has a lot of years left to play so would he want to sit out a year waiting for a trade? Does he want to be a hold out and then be labeled? Could he battle through, play one year for the Swarm, in hopes a deal can be made mid or post season?
very tough sell in the grand scheme of things as it would entail long flights, time zone changes and many days off work. An eastern based Canadian fly in player for the Swarm would have to fly for all but two games in 2012 as to being able to drive to about 80% of their games if they were on an Eastern team. That's a massive tipping point for a player.
to make a decision, Arlotta wouldn't do that to player who's earned the respect like Cosmo but he does hope something can be done. "We aren't talking to any teams right now but my phones always on," a very fair statement as this interview took place at midnight eastern time.
With Nick Patterson and the newly drafted Evan Kirk, Arlotta is happy with their goaltending situation but how can you not want one of, if not the best goalie in the game of lacrosse today playing for your team. In hopes of securing Cosmo, Arlotta has made efforts to sell his prized pick on the Swarm, "I flew out to Toronto to meet Anthony and had dinner with him. I gained even more respect for him after that meeting. But more importantly I came away with even more confidence that he fits perfectly into what we are trying to build in Minnesota."
Anthony Cosmo and Minnesota Swarm still at the dra
"Family comes first and I respect that, that's why we were able to get the deal done for Josh because Terry (Sanderson Toronto Rock GM and Josh's father) wanted him back home playing with the Rock." Arlotta understands Cosmo is in a similar situation but won't be forced into something that's not going to improve his team that has only won 40% of their games since he took over.
For the Swarm they want to improve on that stigma that they are a good team but aren't an elite team. They had the best passer in the game and now he's gone. They've got the best goalie in the game but he could be gone too.
