Riley Cote Waived by the Flyers, Bochenski on re-entry (TB)
 
Per Bob McKenzie: TSNBobMcKenzie

Philadelphia puts Riley Cote on waivers.

Also, Tampa puts Brandon Bochenski on re-entry waivers. If anyone needs a goon or a punching bag, now's their chance.

SolidSnakeUS 03-01-2010 11:17 AM

YES YES YES YES!!!!!!!!!!!! This should of been a LONG time ago!

brtriad 03-01-2010 11:23 AM

This seems like a precursor to a move. Maybe there's some substance to the Dan Hamhuis to the Flyers talk?

First Syvret (shouldn't have been waived) and now Cote looks like a deal is going down in Philly, wonder for who?

Yay For Phillyyyy

Vikke 03-01-2010 11:36 AM

As much as I like Cote's work around the team and in the community, it had to be done.

A source tells me the Flyers told Cote they would only waive him if they needed to clear cap space for a move... Working on it.

Geez...being a good teammate, good for the community, and taking some serious damage to your face for his team/our entertainment just doesn't get you the respect it used to. I know he is pretty much useless to the team right now but no need to celebrate.

He's a waste of cap space. I like him but he's useless as a player

SolidSnakeUS 03-01-2010 11:51 AM

I'm surprised Pyorala hasn't been waived. Do you think he's just kind of a back up player for now?

Cote is a cool dude and he does a ton of charity work, but that isn't a reason to keep a player around. I don't think he'll be picked up. Maybe they'll send him down to the Phantoms but I could just see him retire outright. If so, he'd probably be a good hockey ambassador or something like that where he sticks around with the club doing community work and such.

Teezax 03-01-2010 11:51 AM

No point paying a guy to watch the game.
Get him somewhere where he will play.
This and the Syvret move will clear some change for us, i'm thinking it's to bring in Ellis.

Believe it or not, Riley wasn't despised despite never winning fights and not being remotely talented. He was kept around for the respect factor. Respect will only take you so far. You are correct, despite royally sucking he was a good teammate.

If he retired, it'd be great if he became something that worked for the Flyers and got them sales and still led the Carnival.

I think he's with Adirondack actually.

I like him though. He's an excellent 13th imo.

Really? I didn't even notice :laugh:. Seriously though, even though he can't finish, he's a good defensive forward, mostly for being defensive :laugh:. I forgot he signed a 2-way contract.

danishh 03-01-2010 11:57 AM

i think the flyers could fit ellis now if it was boucher + picks/prospects for ellis.

would make sense for both teams.

I'm pretty sure Cote got himself a 3 year, 1 way deal actually. Which is good for him, because I don't see him latching onto an NHL team again.

wej20 03-01-2010 12:54 PM

Looks like thats Cote done at the NHL level which is a pity as he's a gamer.

RAZZIE King 03-01-2010 12:59 PM

Why all of a sudden do I have chills running up and down my spine??? Could it be that I'm thinking that the Kings will pick him up???

Syrinx 03-01-2010 01:55 PM

Great respect to Cote. I hope he does well wherever he lands. He was a gamer who knew his job and would dance with anyone. He could take a punch like few we've ever seen.

CorpseLW 03-01-2010 02:23 PM

hah. new coach, less goons?

stingo 03-01-2010 02:31 PM

I doubt anyone picks him up.

T_Cage 03-01-2010 02:44 PM

couple minor moves. I might consider picking up Bochenski if i'm razor-thin against the cap and need a 13th F, but I doubt he gets claimed.

Same for Cote. I can see him reporting to the Phantoms

danishh 03-01-2010 02:54 PM

bochenski on re-entry?
with his salary, i'd pick him up just to sneak him back to the minors after the deadline.
