Even so, it would just add to the cluster**** of drama that has been this team this off season.

Is offering a player under contract a (presumably) long-term coaching position in return for that player's retirement cap circumvention?

Oh, it absolutely isn't. I'm just surprised because he's expressed interest in it in the past.

Riles my boy! Propably the biggest reason why I ever begun to follow the Flyers. Sooo happy he's still within the organization. Like someone mentioned earlier in this thread - guy's all balls and heart.

The two big highlights of Cote's career that spring straight to my mind are the following...


...aftermath...





The Roy knockout is the best, but what made that McGrattan fight so spectacular was all the ****talking McGrattan had been doing in the press leading up to that game. And then there was that pic snapped at the Ottawa airport the next time the Flyers flew in for a game...

Exactly. And that's one of my favourite photoshops of all time!!

If he is waived of retires doesn't makes a difference with regard to the cap, so I don't think it's circumvention.

Maybe he still gets 550K, coaching salaries aren't capped.

He's probably going to make a great coach. He was never the most talented, but perseverance was his greatest trait and it paid off. I'm sure that if anyone in Adirondack has issues with doing things half assed, it won't be an issue anymore. For some reason, I'm thinking this is a real good move and Riley is going to do real well in this position.

Good for him. Guess he really wanted to stay a Flyer.

I liked his one fight with Laraque. It was like he didn't care how many times he had to get pounded in the face or spun around by the sweater in a circle, by God he was gonna punch Laraque in the teeth at least once before he went to the ice. And to his credit he did.

Cote was a tough SOB who could take a punch like few others. Good on him for bowing out gracefully with his head still on and to your organization for giving him another opportunity.

This Pen's fan will miss his fights...they were always entertaining!

My fav Cote moment was when he sparked that 4 or 5 goal comeback against, Michael Leighton!

Good riddance, and good luck.

He was never an NHL player, even though he had the heart of a lion and was willing to throw 'em with the best.

Hope he finds success in his new career.

Under the table bonus.



Very likable guy; happy to see him stick around the organization in a coaching capacity.

Glad to hear he's sticking around. Probably one of the nicest all around people I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. I really hope he does well, and respect the hell out of what he gave on the ice.

At any rate, glad to see someone will help Garrett Klotz reach his potential.

Oh... wait... I am now being told that Klotz reached his potential years ago and is a piece of ****.

couldn't play for a damn on the NHL level, but he had a heart of gold and a jaw of steel. i'm really glad he and holly will still be around to continue their charity work. i'd always heard his work ethic was fantastic, so let's see what he can do with the AHL dudes.
