Mazzolini is selling booze in Alaska

Recommended Posts

I got curious and checked in with the Google to see what Mazzolini has been up to since. . . well. . . you know.  Looks like he returned to home-town Anchorage and is working for an alcoholic beverage distributor.

Any predictions what Esposito will be doing next November?

A new team will fold and another team will form in the FHL and will give him a job, that is if he's not in Fayetteville.  Those few games Mazzolini coached for Fayetteville at the beginning of the season might have put him over the edge.  Drove him to drinking!!!!

Since he became a distributor, that means his short stint in Fay'ville drove others to drink.  :drunk:

Well, it's one of the quickest ways to get your distributorship revoked.

Good for him.  There is a lot of money to made in his new line of work unlike the lowly job of coaching A level Pro hockey.  The man was not given a legitimate chance as a hockey coach but it looks as if he has moved on.

You are 100 % correct and he had a better winning % than Esposito.  The coaching move sure has turned out to be a huge mistake.

Again, things happen off the ice that affect the chemistry of coaches, players, staff, and more. Throw knives and hate at me if you want. Doesn't change the fact that it is true. Just saying.

Also, if Mazzolini wasn't given a legitimate chance as a hockey coach by the Marksmen, why didn't someone else hire him in the three months since he was fired?

Because, at least in the SPHL, all the other teams had stable coaching staffs. Anyone know of any teams in other leagues which had their coach fired during the same time frame?

So there were ZERO other coaching opportunities (even assistant coaching or scouting gigs) in the US or Europe? Wish him all the best in his new venture. Shouldn't be hard to find beer customers with a background in hockey. :drunk:

Actually, late November would be a really difficult time to find any openings in hockey ops no matter what continent your search includes.  But I reckon Mazzolini made the best choice for his own situation, and I wish him well.  Not sure what the beer market is like around Anchorage, but a distributorship in the U.S. Midwest can be mighty lucrative if you're willing & able to put in the hours.

That's why, MMA, I asked my question, to see if anyone had an answer. There MAY have been other opportunities, but JMC has provided a plausible response to your question.

I can only assume you speak from a position of inside knowledge. If after 9 games issues were uncovered that were not uncovered in the original vetting process it makes me concerned that the owners could make the same mistakes again and again much like the Cleveland Browns.

All I can say is true colors do come out - good or bad. Sometimes quick, sometimes not. But, if almost 100% of people encountered start reporting similar difficulties with an individual, it has to be taken into account.

So what's happened with the chemistry since Esposito took over?  Please enlighten us with your great insight?  If the chemistry wasn't good then, this team must be headed to summer school since the chemistry grade now is an F!!!!!!

He will have all the time needed to find the right chemistry for this team over the summer to start out fresh next season.  Still gives you few so called fans time to jump on another teams bandwagon.  I hear Peoria is now in first and looking for a couple cheerleaders?
