Cote jumped Shelley in the beginning, but Shelley came back pretty strong, not enough for the win though. As much as I get on Cote about fighting the heavies and sucking, he didn't suck this time but Shelley is getting up there in age for a fighter. Win for Cote in a good, close fight.
The Pens-Flyers rivalry is deep in here too, haha I love it. I'm a Pens fan but I got nothing bad to say about Cote, even though he has lost more than he has won he still takes on anyone, even if he gets destroyed (for you Flyer homers see Laraque vs. Cote, Parros vs. Cote)
The back and forth between people is pretty funny: if you love the Flyers Cote is the greatest and dominated the fight, if you hate the Flyers he's a cheap shot for swinging wiht Shelley down. I've got no problem with what Cote did here because it was the beginning of the fight and Shelley didn't slip, it was either a punch or Cote manhandling him or a combo of both. Anybody would keep swinging at that point. Cote with the win, and he's definitely entertaining, that I've got to say. He's no clutch and grab fighter.
JACKMCC100 - you are on crack if you think cote is fighter of the year - if you said he is the next todd fedoruk (getting knocked RTF out) then I would agree - but other than that, you are on some strong strong pyscho-tropic drugs my friend
