No, it was not stupid he was doing his job. The whole reason he is on the team is to be their enforcer and to fight. He he just stood around and did nothing while his teammates got run all over the ice he would just be another poor enforcer like Brashear.

Bring up some young talent. Key word; talent. Not meatbags on hockey skates. As for Laperriere, I CAN live with him, if I have to. It's just when there seems to be a lineup littered with wasted space a person tends to overreact. Take a guy like Pronger. Thug. But he's also got hockey talent, so I'm happy to have him on this team. If he fires bombs from the point, bashes in Crosby's fake teeth, throws guys around and is SOUND DEFENSIVELY, that's awesome. Flat out thuggery has no place in today's fancy pants game.
Have you even watched a Flyers game in the past year? Powe is not a goon, he is a young, fast defensivly sound forward who is the real reason that Upshall is no longer on the team. Powe is currently a better player then Upshall and has improved as he continued to play and is a cheaper option.

Cote is not supposed to take a minor penalty when doing his job. In this case both got a 5min major for fighting, and Cote an extra 2min minor for instigating, since it was a clean and legal hit. If Cote was smart he should've challenged Orr and drop em after the next faceoff. Now the team had to play short handed, and we don't want that kind of nonsense.

First of all, it's the preseason. How many times did Cote take penalties during the season that hurt the team? maybe a handful of times. Keep crying.
