Good for him. Didn't have much a future, especially in Philly. Glad he is staying with the organization.

Eh, I feel like we'll have trouble developing skill players. We have a plethora of bottom 6 guys who won't see time in Philadelphia as it is. Given the way people feel about about the Phantoms head coach, coupled with this, I'm generally concerned about churning out decent top 9 NHL talent.

I wouldn't count on Holly Smith being around Philly much...unless ex-wives are like ex-players and just can't seem to leave.

Riley Cote is without a doubt one of the coolest athletes to meet and hang out with. He actually gave my buddy and I a ride to the bar one night from Chickie's and Pete's to hang out with others on the team.

As for the MMA thing, its definitely still a possibility, and I imagine he would fair better there with proper size match-ups and what not...

Either way, it definitely is great to see them figure out a nice solution for him that doesn't involve the press box for 82 games.

I always thought Cote would make a great Ambassador for the team. Glad he's able to stay with the organization. Hope he enjoys the new gig.

By all reports he's a helluva nice guy and fighting the guys he fought to try and spark the team? He gets tons of from me.

Hope his work ethic translates into being a successful coach for our Phantoms.

I respect Cote for making it to the NHL with the limited set of tools that he has, and for the heart he showed on the ice. I can't say I'm sorry to see him off the roster, but I'm glad to see he's staying within the Flyers' organization. Good luck to him.

Guy loved being a Flyer, maybe if he ever coaches the Flyers, the Cote Carnival will be back!

No, lol.

Coaching and playing are two separate facets.

And offering that player a "bonus" or other incentives as part of taking a coaching position is allowed. I'm sure the Flyers are making sure Riley is properly compensated.
Also, for anyone wondering if Cote can be a useful coach, just look around the NHL, AHL and ECHL. How many skill players are coaching? Far fewer than the grinders and grunts. The stars made too much money to coach, but there are other skill players that never hit the big payday. The grunts and grinders are the ones who worked hardest to play, they usually know how to make prospects better as coaches.

Bingo.

Just look at one of the assistant coaches for the Flyers (Craig Berube). Enforcer when he played, but he's a terrific assistant coach.

I think Cote will do fine as an assistant with the Phantoms.

I'm going to miss him whenever the Devils play the Flyers. He certainly made those games interesting.

It would probably be weird for a lot of guys to play for someone not much older than them.

When someone suggests a coach had to have been a "good player" to make a "good coach", I usually just remind them that Wayne Gretzky was a head coach for a minute there...... yyyeeeeeaahh.

Best of luck to Riley. He's one of the guys you can't help but root for.

The Flyers website is my homepage, I went on the internet, saw the headline and laughed a little bit.

But good for him, and it would be pretty cool if actually turned into a decent coach.

When I read going into coaching I figured physical/conditional coaching due to all the training/conditioning/lifting/all the MMA he's been working on and stuff, figured he'd be perfect for that. But like real real coach.. Assistant coach. I'm not sure but hes one of the few guys I hope proves me wrong.

This couldn't have ended better. Cote is exactly what a NHL player should be...personable, active in the community, and willing to go above and beyond for the team. Cote did whatever was asked of him night in and night out with an extremely limited skillset. Here's to hoping he turns into a stellar coach.

Riley Cote needs English lessons.




What do you guys think, is he HOF worthy?
