Agree with PaddyD, Cote has HUGE heart but he's going to get killed soon. Cote always answers the bell but the Flyers need a legit tuff guy as do my Blackhawks who have Matt Walker as our top cop. Asham needs to be the top cop here as he can always hold his own and does not get beat down night after night. I really do appreciate Cote and Walker to the 10th power. Hey Flyers, we got a guy named Ben Eager... W to Michael Boulton.
cote is game and ready to go with anyone but boulton looks like he could be the best pound per pound fighter in the league...smaller than cote but has beat him twice recently. remember boulton's great showing against colton orr in another looong fight earlier this season? boulton goes about his business quieter than the more well known enforcers but he's as tough for his size as they come. as far as picking one with shanny on friday, i think it was payback for rupp breaking his nose with an elbow while boulton was down...go after the talented guys if your enforcer is gonna take cheap shots...i'm not saying it's right, it's just payback.
I don't understand it. All Cote does anymore is grab and get pummeled. He doesn't knocked down usually, but he rarely wins. Would love to see him throw some hay-makers, because watching him get beat every night is starting to get depressing.
in the past when the flyers played the rough suff , then to us in phila they had no draws just an asskicking or a loss the asskickers the flyers had won five out of six most of the time.. cote would have been long gone back then but we want a stanley cup now and with all the euros playing now it not feesable to pay 4 or 5 enforcers who just can fight... the game has changed so much dem day will soon be lost forever besides a great check is alot better than these modern fights but i could be wrong......rick tocchet ,probert, w clarke,cam neely .where have you gone........
He's not overrated, everyone knows he's THE WORST fighter in the entire league. I think they just keep him around because he'll fight literally anyone, even though he keeps getting his ass kicked.
