Riley Cote...

I know we've just seen one game with the new guy, Daniel Carcillo, but we all know he's not shy when it comes to shooting the boots.

I mean, do we really need Asham, Carcillo AND Cote?

Carcillo and Asham can both play, Cote simple cannot.



The question is, what to do with Cote???


Thoughs?

Dump Cote, bring up Kalinski. Have a 4th line like Washington or Boston that can skate and pin the other team in their zone come playoffs.

and I agree with Billy up there^^


Demote him to the Phantoms. I remember when I went to some games last year, I saw a few Cote jerseys. I don't understand why anyone would buy one of his jerseys. I guess, he was a fan favorite? This year he just down right sucks.

Woah..

The other Cote thread disappeared.

But anyways. Cote should be gone. Team toughness>>>>> Enforcer

We have Asham and Carcillo. Two of the best middleweights in the game. They can also play some damn hockey. Cote cannot. He just makes everyone on his line look like ****. Notice when Asham was put with Carcillo and Giroux that was the only line that did something all night.

Cote needs to be waived and put on the Phantoms

I thought I was going crazy. I was beginning to believe the other Cote thread didn't exist. Glad I wasn't the only one who saw it.

Phillyfans? Not liking tough guys? Madness!

Well, I'd keep him in the lineup until the playoffs and then bring up someone with puck-skills. Cote can be brought back to the lineup IF some of the series gets really dirty.

Not really sure how good Ross or Kalinski actually are, well yea saw them play earlier this season but not that much tho, if they get atleast somewhat close to Giroux and others that have stepped up from the Phantoms to the NHL team, then of course give them the roster spot.

Or do it like some teams do? Put the enforcers in to the pressbox for matches like Detroit and such. Then in the other hand... take them in to the lineup for games against rivalries or others that usually play dirty and are willing to fight alot.

Better to have Cote being the punchbag for Godard or Orr than Hartnell?

Cote is just the odd man out now. Having Asham, Carcillo and Cote in the lineup together is unnecessary.

Asham and Carcillo should be able to contribute in more areas of the game than Cote, so that makes him expendable. The Flyers don't need a heavyweight fighter, and Cote has really been fighting out of his league anyway, so Asham and Carcillo should suffice.

Hartnell wouldnt be fighting Godard or Orr, thats what Asham and Carcillo are for. I dont want to sacrifice a roster spot just so we have someone to get his ass kicked. Cote is seriously terrible and Im shocked he found his way onto an NHL roster for this long, let alone the roster of a good team.

I assume John Stevens is banging Cotes wife.




No other reason to let the punch-bag play.

Cote has some use if the other team has an Heavyweight dressed but when the playoffs start he is deemed useless.

I think we all love tough guys, but the fact that Cote loses 90% of his bouts and bring no other tangibles to his game. He's not feared, nor does he create space like a Brashear does.

I don't think it's all that important to have a heavyweight in the lineup, the Red Wings don't and they get by just fine.

Hartnell isn't dumb enough to drop the gloves with Godard and I'm sure if they had to...Asham or Carcillo would answer the bell.



Ross/Kalinski >>> Cote

Remaining 18 games and playoffs.

I like Cote, but he hasn't really improved as a player this season. If he could play at Asham's level he'd be OK on the 4th line but he can't, and he's not a legit heavyweight, so realistically the team can do without him.

I think cote has a massive influence in the dressing room though. For all you guys that hate him. He's been through the crap, he gets beaten up every week and he's still the first one on the ice and last to leave. Something younger players should be looking up too

you know i called for Cote to be moved last year and got eaten alive by the Cote nuthuggers, now it seems like everyone is catching up... he is useless. We dont need him, either send him down or send him packing with Jones
