Does anyone remember Jean-Philippe Côté?

He was in your organization from 03 - 08 and played eight NHL games in 05/06. He is about to sign in Europe (again) and I wonder if some of you could give me a description of his game. Has been described here as a solid defensive D.
Thanks a lot!

Cool. What I remember of him is that he was good defensively, but don't expect any offense or anything special. (unless he got better since his days in Montreal) He's the kind of player that goes unnoticed during the game, and that's how it should be because it means he does the little things right.

Solid defensively. He didn't look bad in the NHL, he just didn't have any tools besides solid positioning. He's smart, will make the smart play, and he's tough. In the lower leagues, he's definitely good enough to be a Top-4 guy (or at least he was).

I think he was pretty strong too, wasn't he? He was a big tall guy I thought. Also, I think he could fight? I remember seeing him play, he was an honest player. Nothing flashy at all, very little actual talent, but he didn't look out of place. Just... Not really suited for post-lock-out hockey.

I thought he'd amount to more. Him and Jonathan Ferland. Disappointments...

He was originally drafted by....the Leafs!!!

I saw him at pre-season camp one year. He looked at least as good as Komisarek out there. Very vocal, directed the traffic in the defensive end. I would consider him a defensive D with decent size.

When he did not get a sniff of the NHL, even considering the lack of physicality on the Habs D, I realized there must be things I had no understanding of when it came to evaluating players at a pre-season camp.

His feet were too slow, good junior player but a bit slow footed for today's NHL.

In all humility, I did not see him as any slower than Komisarek.

He was mostly victim of a numbers game. Since he wasn't exactly "special" in any regards, and that some players couldn't be sent down without going through waivers, he's the one that was left in the AHL.

He was a solid stay at home type when he was with the Dogs but I haven't seen him play since he was in Hamilton. Hard working, had a solid physical game and good on the PK.

I remember he was fairly solid the few games with us that he got called up for, thought he could've made it in the NHL as a bottom pairing D somewhere.

His dad is Alain Côté, scorer of the most famous non goal in the history of Québec.

He was nothing special. Not NHL calibre, but not bad either.

I saw him play at a development camp in Ottawa back when they played rookies from Ottawa, Toronto and usually TB or FLA. He stood out to me as the most compentent D-man on the ice, mind you it was amongst mostly rookies/AHL guys but still I never understood why he never got a better oppurtunity at the NHL level.

I also thought the same thing about Beauchemin as well...which pissed me off when we lost him for nothing.

I thought him and Carle never had a real chance. They had what one game in the NHL?

Cote played 8 NHL games in '05-'06, Carle played 3 in '09-'10

Gainey seemed extremely cautious with young defensemen. O'Byrne barely played, it took ages for Komisarek to make the team and they gave up on guys like Hainsey, Beauchemin and Robidas pretty quick. Streit playing as a forward is another example. It was very difficult for a rookie D to make it to the big team with all the overpaid, overused and extremely average veterans we had back then.

I'm surprised Carle&Cote didn't get more games as I remember them being solid in their short NHL stings. Carle didn't make mistakes and Cote was decent.
