    If anything, this trade has thrust the NLL back into the media eye at least for awhile. It never hurts to shake things up a bit, although I think Toronto gave up a little too much.

    Why do you say he's trash?

    If he is trash he is about to set a WLA record for best stopped percentage and lowest GAA:

    To answer Mr. Metalhead's question...

    ...because Mr. Purplenurple thinks he knows everything. He is, however, entitled to his opinion.

    Anthony is an excellant goaltender and this is not just my opinion. Just ask a guy many think is the best every- Mr. Dallas Eliuk.

    I am sorry to see him go. Would I have traded him? Likely not but...I am not the coach and so I didn't get to decide. He has been a real treat to watch and has made the Rock games all that much better for his best fan.

    This young man has taken time, every game, to wave to a fan who sits off his right shoulder in the ACC...and to talk to her every time an opportunity arises. And she will always cherish a picture of the two of them, on the floor at the HSBC Arena, taken this winter, that he signed for her 75th birthday. So...not only is he a fine athlete but he is also an extraordinary young man. Just my opinion;)

    If Cos is junk, i'm a gajillionaire!:rotfl: Dude has game and class, St. Kitts was a blast last season with Cos in town. My son tried to shark him on the dart-board one nite...wasn't gonna happen against Cos, but he had a good time with him anyways. Soon enough you'll be able to put Cos and Dallas in the same sentance....mark my words!

    Geez doesn't anyone know sarcasm when it hits them in the face?Toll has been T.O.'s second most valuable player after Jimmy and they let him go also.

    I wondered, because I've never seen you say anything bad about Cosmo or Toll before.

    Its tough to "hear" the sarcasm in printed word though. That's why they give you these things :rolleyes:, so you can make sure everyone knows.

    Cosmo will be dealt to Vancouver once this all settles down.
    Just a gut feeling... I see him staying on the "left coast", but I see him wearing a Crow jersey. Not sure who would be dealt, but possibly some offensive help for SJ.

    I doubt that Coz would enjoy playing in a system that has the goalie pulled every three goals against (as was the situation in SJ last season).

    I guess we can wait and see!

    i see anthony coming back east

    just a gut feeling i have

    I have a feeling it will be either in teal or in black and orange *crosses fingers for black and orange*. I don't know if Coz is a big fan of the Terry Sanderson School of Coaching, but having been sent out of town to bring in more of the Sanderson clan after being the Rock's #2 for the past three years has got to hurt...

    Hey, wouldn't it be cool if Cosmo and Quinn platooned up in Buffalo? Then they'd really be the Buffalo Athletics! :D

    where does chugger go ????

  16. MacRazor

    MacRazor New Member

    Meathead, that'd be cool as heck as long as they ship Time Out down here too!:drunk:

    As for Chugger, boot him upstairs to be GM and then boot Silcott up another level to "over-see" all things Bandits.

    Mac be likin' the "idea" of Cos in Orange and Black!

    BARKS DAWG Active Member

    i think YOU should be the gm MAC

    Cosmo and Quinn... now THAT sounds like a great goalie combo!!

    But I keep thinking a new goalie is too much to hope for for Buffalo.

    Thanks BARKS, you're too kind and "misinformed":D Come to think of it though I AM unemployed still and could be swayed towards a career change!:rotfl:

    Rumor has it that Cos is furious about the trade and will not be heading west no matter what (looks like you may be out a few beers AP). He was the other name in the trade but b/c of his work commitent here he can't commit to play full time for a western team.

    From what I hear (and those of you who know who I am, know where this is coming from) the league will be hearing from him b/c if he can't play locally, probably meaning Roch, TO, or Buff he won't be playing anywhere next year.

    My personal speculation might be Rochester, I know there is some bad blood between O'Toole and management and they didn't franchise him last year when they had the chance. There could be another trade in the works for all we know.

    As for all you Rusty Kruger doubters, last night he scored 3 goals, including 1 short handed, in Brampton's sound defeat of St. Catherine's. And Steenhuis was in the lineup.
