CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The Hounds war room was buzzing with scenarios and excitement leading up and into the 2012 MLL Expansion Draft. After discussions with the Long Island Lizards, the Hounds selected Max Quinzani with the 4th overall selection and immediately dealt him to the Lizards as part of a huge deal.
The Hounds traded Max Quinzani and the #1 overall 2012 MLL Collegiate Pick for former Team USA starting attackman Matt Danowski (A), Stephen Berger (M), the 20th overall 2012 MLL Collegiate Pick and a 3rd Round 2013 MLL Collegiate Pick.
“The 2012 MLL Collegiate Draft is loaded with talent, particularly at the top. Rob Pannell and Steele Stanwick are highly coveted and will make an immediate, positive impact wherever they land. Despite the strength in the Draft, we saw an opportunity to leverage the top pick to bring in two of the top 20 players in the league.” said Hounds staffer Wade Leaphart.
“We're thrilled. We see Matt and Stephen as building blocks for us. Two great MLL pros with a rich pedigree,” added Coach Mike Cerino.
BOTC has received a note from very close sources to the Long Island Lizards. The internal noise following the draft is huge, fan discontent has been hitting the front office, and the intense dislike for their General Manager is emerging.
Text of the note follows.
Loss of three great fan fav players. One Matt danowski was one of the best college players in the game and league top 10 in scoring for last few years.
Coach is leaving and they didn't secure at least two other popular players one the league all time scorers. Many others unhappy due to moves by Casey Hilpert, the very young GM. Who is widely disliked. Many fans of the team are very unhappy.
Mule Steps Down as Lizard's Head Coach, Hilpert Issues Statement
The Long Island Lizards of Major League Lacrosse (MLL) announced late last week that Jimmy Mule has stepped down from his position as head coach to spend more time with family, according to Lizards General Manager Casey Hilpert.
“Jimmy was looking for the opportunity to spend time with family during the summer months. He has three young children who he also coaches in lacrosse. He always gives us so much throughout the season and during the off-season and he’s looking forward to spending some of that time with his family,” said Hilpert.
“It was an extremely difficult decision to make after investing seven seasons with the Lizards, but it was the right choice to make for my family,” said former Lizards Head Coach Jimmy Mule. “I hope to return to the organization in some capacity down the road. I wish the team the best of luck in the upcoming MLL seasons.”
Mule coached the Lizards from 2005 to 2011, leading them to the post-season in 2005, 2009 and 2010. The Long Island native posted an overall season record of 37-47 and a playoff record of 2-3. In 2011 the Lizards were 5-7 and finished fifth in the league. Mule was named the MLL Coach of the Year in 2010.
Prior to coaching for the Lizards, Mule coached for the Bridgeport Barrage from 2003 to 2004 where he helped lead the ’04 Barrage team to the MLL Championships and to win the Steinfeld Trophy. Mule was also a goaltender in the league before his years as a coach. He was drafted in the second round (12th overall) of the 2001 MLL Draft and was the starting goalie for the Barrage in 2001 and 2002.
The Lizards will immediately conduct a national search for the next head coach of the Long Island organization. Hilpert says the next candidate will have big shoes to fill in the wake of Mule’s departure.
“Jimmy has been a valuable part of this organization since he took over in 2005. He’ll be a tough guy to replace as he had a great relationship with the players and was an unbelievable scout of talent within the collegiate level and Major League Lacrosse.”
Though the Lizards have not named anyone of interest, they will be seeking candidates with MLL experience to fill the position. The team added that they will be looking to name a coach as soon as possible, but will hold out for the right person with MLL coaching or playing experience.
The news comes directly after the team traded star attackman Matt Danowski and midfielder Stephen Berger to the newly formed Charlotte Hounds during Wednesday’s MLL Expansion Draft in exchange for the No. 1 pick in the 2012 MLL Collegiate Draft. The 2012 MLL Collegiate Draft will take place on Jan. 13, 2012 in Philadelphia, PA during the US Lacrosse National Convention.
Major League Lacrosse (MLL) held its 2012 Expansion Draft on Wednesday which brought forth not only major roster changes throughout the league, but a blockbuster trade between the new Charlotte Hounds and the Long Island Lizard.
During the draft, MLL announced the Charlotte Hounds would acquire Lizards’ attack and midfield staples, Matt Danowski and Stephen Berger, as well as two draft picks in exchange for the No. 1 MLL Collegiate Draft pick. Additionally, the Hounds would surrender MLL All-Star and former Boston Cannons attackman Max Quinzani, who was drafted by Charlotte in the second round (4th overall selection) of Wednesday’s Expansion Draft.
“We’ve always had Matt Danowski and Stephen Berger as two of our main guys on this team,” said Long Island Lizards General Manager Casey Hilpert. “They’ve both been tremendous teammates and great for this organization so it was a very difficult decision for us to make. It’s tough to lose staples in your offense, but at the same time, we feel that we now have a few pieces that will help us win next season.”
The few pieces Hilpert refers to include Quinzani and the coveted No. 1 selection in the 2012 MLL Collegiate Draft that will take place on January 13, 2012 in Philadelphia, PA. The Lizards have not yet announced which current collegiate star tops their list, but they do say the team is looking to fill the undeniable void in their attack left by Matt Danowski.
“It’s one of those situations where we have one pick in mind that will make the most sense for our organization,” Hilpert said. “That was our intention when we made the trade. We are going to sit down and analyze the situation to make sure it’s right for us, but we’re looking for someone who is going to be a staple in our attack and a face for our organization for many years to come.”
The two NCAA collegiate players topping everyone’s lists are nationally renowned attackmen Rob Pannell of Cornell and Steele Stanwick of the University of Virginia. Pannell happens to hail from Long Island, and would fit the mold for the rebuilding Lizards organization.
The Charlotte Hounds received two of the biggest names in Major League Lacrosse in Wednesday’s trade. As a new team starting from scratch, the Hounds noted the importance of having athletes ready to play at the professional level by April 28 when the 2012 MLL season begins.
“We decided to make a move that would provide us with MLL-ready players for training camp at the start of the season in exchange for a MLL Collegiate Draft pick that could potentially be a big game changer for the League,” said Hounds Director of Sales and Marketing, Wade Leaphart. “Danowski’s ties to the area with his father coaching at Duke University, combined with Berger’s interest in wanting to come down this way also led us to make the decision.”
Several other trades came to fruition during Wednesday’s draft. Dan Burns was the 1st overall selection, drafted by the Rochester Rattlers, and was traded back to Hamilton (along with Rochester’s 2nd and 3rd round picks in next week’s MLL Supplemental Draft) for Kevin Leveille and Hamilton’s 2nd round pick in the Supplemental Draft.
In the third and final trade, the Ohio Machine sent Brian Spallina and their 26th overall selection in the 2012 MLL Collegiate Draft to the Chesapeake Bayhawks for the 21st overall selection in the 2012 MLL Collegiate Draft.
BOSTON, Mass. (December 14, 2011) - Major League Lacrosse (MLL) announced Wednesday the MLL Supplemental Draft results following the second of three drafts slated to take place prior to the 2012 season, according to MLL Commissioner David Gross. All players were selected from the MLL Player Pool.
Each of the league's eight teams made selections in 18 rounds (144 total picks), beginning with attackman Chazz Woodson, who was the first overall selection by the Ohio Machine. The ensuing first round selections were as follows: The Charlotte Hounds selected defenseman Steve Panarelli as the 2nd overall selection, and the Rochester Rattlers selected attackman Steven Boyle as the 3rd overall selection.
The Long Island Lizards selected defenseman Chris Passavia as the 4th overall selection, the Chesapeake Bayhawks selected midfielder John Orsen as the 5th overall selection, the Denver Outlaws selected defenseman Lee Zink as the 6th overall selection, the Hamilton Nationals selected defenseman Ken Clausen as the 7th overall selection and finally the MLL Champion Boston Cannons selected midfielder Jon Hayes as the 8th overall selection to complete Round 1.
Full results of the draft appear below.
Following the 18 rounds, teams that had not reached 35-players were able to fill out their rosters by making additional selections. The Charlotte Hounds selected two players while the Ohio Machine and Chesapeake Bayhawks each selected one player.
Beginning on Friday, December 16th, teams may begin to claim the remaining players in the MLL Player Pool through the league's waiver process to fill out their 40-man active preseason rosters. After training camp, teams must pare down their active rosters to 25 players.
Up next for the league is the 2012 MLL Collegiate Draft, which will take place on Friday, January 13th 2012 in Philadelphia, PA during the US Lacrosse National Convention.
