Stealth Send Cosmo to the Shamrox

The San Jose Stealth have sent NLL Goaltender of the Year Anthony Cosmo to the Chicago Shamrox for goaltender Matt Roik and 2008 and 2009 first round picks.

This move is more of a players move than anything else. Cosmo has been looking to move back east so it makes his life easier with living in Ontario. Roik plays summer ball out west and now can setup shop out west and be able to coordinate summer and winter ball.

In terms of how it affects the teams it definitely impacts the Stealth. Roik is not a bad goaltender which he showed in the second half of last season with the Shamrox. The Shamrox went on a second half run which put them in contention for the playoffs but ultimately they fell short. But he is not Cosmo, who has made his name for the Stealth. Cosmo may be lost on the Shamrox which hasnt really had major success since joining the NLL and plays in a very tight Eastern Conference with stacked teams like Buffalo, New York, Rochester, and Philadelphia.
