Lets go back to the old days.If want fight FIGHT. DO NOT PULL THE MAN TO THE ICE. thank you
How can any of you Cote-cum slurpers give him a win for this crap fight???
Cote couldn't get to the box fast enough. Godard a big man if I were Cote I'd be scared too. Has the guy won 1 fight yet this year?
Cote starts with a hug fest, thinks he got 1 shot in, and grabs his man and pulls him down to end it fast. A real wuss of a move. RC is becoming know as the best hugger in hockey. Draw, but it may have been a smart move. Flyers4Life, Oh really you were there. I guess they showed a totally different clip of the fight on this web site. Try watching it again 3 or 4 times with the audio off. Huggy bear riley! Furthermore if your coach focused more on the hockey game than trying blitz Malkin and Crosby he may have won the game. I think you have been sitting to close to Coatesy your starting to sound like him!
Draw.... This new style of Cote's blows!! No excitement.It used to be, everyone of his fights was, highlight reel material.win or lose...It was always exciting.. Now it looks like he's just trying to not get beatup...W.T.F Cote,, LET THE HANDS GO or LET ASHAM do the dirty work!!!!!
Crap fight! Godard gave 0% effort. Besides, Cote grabbed Godard and started hugging him. I like Godard but just like his last fight with laracque, he didn't throw that many punches. Is he just getting lazy? I guess he doesn't have anything to prove but he should still try and win his fights.
I know what Goddard was thinking. "Thats right Riley, You better drag me down, cause you don't want NONE OF THIS!" If that is a win for Riley, than fighting in Phillly has gone to shi!.
Cote landed one then dragged God down b4 he got his ass beat. Chicken Sh.it. Just wanted to get the win for once. Cheap.
Anyone who says that Cote won is nothing but a homer Flyer fag fan. Nobody won, Cote obviously does not want to trade with Godard so he hus him and tries to get him off balanced and then fall down with him, Cote cant beat Godard.
No winner. and no loser, expectd more.
no punches landed hard. DRAW!!!!!
Crap scrap...draw and a yawner,
after watching all the other bs fights i was looking foward to these 2 guys huge let down. im sorry im hating so much but its a shame what hap to the NHL wheres domi,probert,kocur and grimson and old school brawlers like them . every fight it looks like there not willing to take a shot to land one
That's a draw.
this fight was a draw, each guy got in a shot. goodard had nothing to prove, he's been kicking cote's ass all year.
Cote gets a "W" for this??? Did he get a punch off? maybe so but i didn't think it was enuff for a "W". kind of looked like a muffin toss to me...but wtf do i know?
Credit Cote for being willing to fight the much bigger and stronger Godard. Draw. Crap fight
both guys landed one good shot each......very close bout........wanted to say slight edge to cote........watched it several times in slo- mo.....cote's first hit didnt land......but cote got a nice left on godard.......godard got a nice right ...but ,,,,,,,just a draw in my eyes........kudos for cote for hangin with the heavyweight champ........kudos to cote.....keep tryin cote has alot of heart...man u got to give cote that.....oh.......by the way bt wilson i thought u would never say the words mcb again...yeah right....ha ha ha ...u love mcb u cant get enough of mcb.....ha ha ha
Epic snoozer of a draw.
Cote with the win? Are you freakin' kidding me? This is a DRAW people..my kids get in better scraps then this..PHLYERS fans stop being homers..
draw. If anything slight edge to cote.
Cote used his leverage to pin down EG this clearly forcing a todo over until it's right.....draw! Both are beast though.
How can anyone vote this anything more than a draw? Cote was not hitting anything solid or even good at all. Weak fight. Cote trying to give Godard a huge kept it a weak fight. Grow some Cote!
i have seen better fights during a waltz draw
COTEX finally wins one but not by much, he's such a puss the way he hugs,lands one punch and then takes godard to the ice. i have zero respect for cotex. but i will say this is the 1st fight against a Pen that he's won, though by the slimmest of margins. Godard will wipe the ice with him soon so enjoy it COTEX, it wont happen again !
Cote had the edge on this fight. I almost fell asleep waiting for the fight to get started.
Cote gets a slight edge in a nothing scrap. Dissapointment compared to their previous hummdingers.
Cote this time
Too much hugging, Cote really wanted to fight, looks like Godard wanted no part of that
Im a diehard fan and I have to give the win to Cote here. It was a joke of a fight but Cote won this one slightly.
The best thing that happened for Cote in this bout was that he was huggin Godard long enough to sneak a couple of shots in and the refs came to his rescue quick..... Cote is tough but out of his league against Godard, he got this one out of luck more then anything. Cant wait to see these two hook up again although it may not be til next yr.... hopefully Godard has long memory!
Edge Cote. Crap fight. Neither looked like they wanted to go.
Cote is the worst " toughman fighter" in the league, but slightly won this
Cote delivered for the victory in a very dull fight.
Cote wins(surprise, surprise) by not letting Godard set up. No real damage but Cote did carry what little action there was.
I love Cote so I find it unnerving when he drops the mitts with Godard. It wasn't the greatest fight, for the potential it had. Cote's new style is boring but way smarter than how he used to fight in the past, especially against a wrecking machine like Godard. Cote comes out on top in this one, seemed to land more, though nothing big. I'm calling this one a 4. And pay no heed to whatever inane jibberish mcb comes up with for this one.
Cote lands the better of the punches, but then drags Godard down. Slight edge Cote.
Narrow win for Cote--any time he doesn't skate away with raccoon eyes, it's a moral victory. But that the Flyers didn't come away with a point after being down, the fight didn't mean much.
Cote wins this one... Hit the punches and Godard hit none.
A Hugfest in the beginning but then Cote landed some good punches and thank that it will be good if the fight will over right after that. WIn goes to Cote. Expected more from this scrap.
Goddard last time, Cote this time!
For those who say this was a draw are either stupid or blind. Cote got in more punches and kept Goddard off balance then threw a few upper cuts before both went down. This was not a stand up and trade punches fight, but it was a win for Cote hands down. Cote is not the biggest or best fighter in the league but at least give him credit when it's due. He at least stands up to every player.
Cote won plain and simple...
Cote with a solid win here against a solid heaveyweight.
Can't believe I'm saying this, considering the competition, but... slight edge Cote.
by no means a great showing by either - i suppose riley gets the nod because he landed an ok shot and godard never really got going before the take down. cote has some good fortune here, godard can really throw them given the opening.
Jeez. I guess the Flyer - Haters are that hung up on the fact that once in a while we win one. Now they're all blasting Riley about is style. Please get lives. At 6'1" the guy goes toe-to-toe with behemoths night after night. So he finally gets smart and goes close only to get tagged with the "huggy-bear" label. Simply put; Cote WIN!!! Deal with it.
hate to....but have to give it to Cote
Nothing better than reading people sitting on their couch call Cote a wimp for fighting smart against Godard. I'd like to see one of these people stand in there and let Godard swing freely with that jackhammer. Smart fight, win by Cote but no damage.
Cote won so deal with it. I am a cote hater by the way.
Win to Cote but he looked pretty scared. Didn't want to give Godard any chance to get loose after he hit him a few times, then went for the take down.
CLEAR WIN Cote.
Cote lands a nice first left, quick, but at the same time Godard takes it nicely hiding it's effects. He does do the 'grab after getting popped' thing so he definitely took a good one. Fizzled out quickly.
Godard was the clear favorite here and even kept Cote from jumping in early. this fight was decided when they locked as Riley got in close and was in control the whole time. Godard wanted to keep going, but better to regroup and fight again. If they kept going, Cote had a shot to land a solid uppercut or 5. Lucky for Godard The Zebs ended it. We certainly need to see these 2 go again just to see if Cote would dominate him or if Godard would come back. Their previous fights were more wide open, but Since then Cote has started fighting in close so he doesn't get out slugged. I believe his eyes are completely open for now. They had been swollen shut through mid season, partly because of Godard.
nice to see Cote switch up the fighting style. Godard ate 2 upper cuts,which seemed to surprise him. To all you goofs who voted Godard the winner, get over your man crushes. Godardright did you change your real name too? Stop smoking his hog, and except the fact that your boyfriend lost.
Paddyd - Cote starts with a hug fest? Like godard didnt grab onto him. I was at the game. So all of you clowns who think cote threw one punch and took him down are nuts. At the game they showed multiple replays and cote landed 2-3 punches to godard face. I hate people who just hate on people and dont give credit where credit is due. Cote had a good showing here. Oil can henry - Throw one punch and then fall down? Watch the fight again clown. Nice try though
I stopped posting on this site because of some of the ridiculously frustrating comments made by people on here, and the comments following this fight are a perfect example. We have a few people voting Godard the winner of this fight, and a somewhat substantial amount questioning the willingness of the guy with the most reckless style in the league. Ask Eric Godard if Riley Cote is willing, and then ask him who won this fight. I'm not saying this was a total domination or anything of the sort, but it was a clear victory for Cote. He caught him with a couple good shots and didn't take any in return while controlling the tempo of the fight. If the roles were reversed in this one, you'd be saying how Godard dominated as expected. It's just that he can't win with some of you who have nothing better to do than wait for a Cote fight so you can come in here and trash him. "He's a punching bag, his style is too open, he hugs too much, he's a pussy, etc. etc. etc." Anyone who spouts this sort of nonsense is a know-nothing idiot, and Georges Laraque's recent quotes regarding idiots on the internet were directed at you. Riley Cote won most exciting fighter and people's choice on this site for a reason. You haters are just too blinded by your own idiotic agendas to see it.
Godard LOST this one, plain and simple. Can't people leave their like or dislike of a team/player out of this and just vote with their EYES and not their HEART? Fuk, Cote beat him plain and simple.
Cote had the better showing. No one got tagged and the fight will be one of those easily forgotten. A Good fight for the home fans who went to the game wanting to see the big boys drop their gloves. Nothing more than that.
Cote with the better fight. Gets the W
Slight edge Cote.
cote landed 3. later video of godard showed a pretty nasty raspberry next to his right eye. cote then definitely ended it while he was ahead. its a win nonetheless
Anyone who voted Draw or for Godard is an idiot or blind. Maybe both. If you can't vote honeslty why bother. Some of you people on here are blind as a bat and as dumb as one. Cote landed 3 or 4 shots, Godard none. Glasses are needed for some of you idiots.
Cote w/ the win.
this fight ended a little too quick.
very close Cote got more hits in a too short fight.
Close Win by Cote.
great fight between two of the better fighters in the NHL today. slight edge to cote in this bout. cote and godard are real good fighters unlike the RANGERS AND BRUINS WHO HAVE NO REAL GOOD FIGHTERS!!! THE RANGERS AND BRUINS HAVE THE WORST FIGHTERS IN THE NHL!!!
I really do not care for either, however Cote landed 1 if not 2 effective punches for the win.
Cote with upset win, Godard loses 2 in a row but will rebound
cote all the way
Edge Cote. I caught the end of this on television and thought Cote dominated, but after watching the replay it was very close. Godard looked a bit frustrated after taking a couple of in close left hands, but he didn't do anything to erase those points.
Riles can't stand and trade with Goddard with Goddard's size advantage so he took another approach as he does with alot of bigger guys with reach advantages. They don't provide for real entertaining fights or big heavy blows, but it still got him the win here. I'm just upset the Thorton said No when Riles asked him to go on both occasions when they played Boston. Those two give some great entertainment. I guess Thorton is trying to be more of a player these days.
I'm so happy Cote got a W on this fight .
Cote with the clear win here. Landed pretty much all the punches including the first one, and had the take down.
Crap fight. Cote needed a win and he got it...barely. That was a desperate win. If Cote loses many more fights he will not be around next year.
your the man riley!
Cote won this bout without a doubt. He only got one shot in? Watch it again? maybe I am watching a different fight. Cote lands almost every one he throws. Godard landed about one Watch from about the 29 second mark to the 34 second mark, he lands about 4 solid punches. It takes two players to hug-fight. 2% for Godard? What part of Pittsburgh are you from?
Cote just doesn't have the size that other heavyweights have yet never backs down from a challenge. He was bested by Godard in their first meeting of the season but won this short tilt thanks for some quick left hands. I'm surprised they didn't go for round 2 later in the game. CEO
Say what you want about Riley's new style, but he won the fight. Godard didn't land a single punch.
I was watching this game just to see if Cindy would pretend he was at the I-376 rest stop and try to grab some nuts instead I was rewarded with this crapfest. Cote gets tired of losing fights and now decides to hug it out and then pull Goddard to the ice.
what a major disappointment this one was, boo on you riley and eric
Square-up,....throw one punch,...grab-on,....wrassle,...fall down,...draw.
Looked like Cote wanted to kiss Godard at the beginning, a draw.
not worth scoring. draw
Draw. Miley hugs away...maybe lands one shot then pulls Godard down like a chick.
I love both of these fighters, usually very entertaining guys to watch. Looked like Cote didn't want to trade with Godard this time though. Nothing much happening here. Can't give the decision to Cote for getting in tight to hang on, so niether guy could get going. Draw
Not Godard's best work, against a second-tier guy like Cote. Then again, nobody on the Pens seems to care about doing anything, especially playing physical, this season. Talbot, Orpik, Gill, Cooke, Staal??? All MIA--might as well be putting some high school players out there.
Draw, plain and simple
I used to think highly of Cotex for his willingness to fight. But not after this. If Cotex is scared to fight, he should just keep his gloves on. Win to Godard for being the only one of the two that was willing to fight. Cotex's days in the NHL are numbered if this is how he plans to show for himself...
The fight consists of mostly hugging. Cote got a couple of solid shots in at the end. Win Cote
Win to Cote
Edge to cote
Cote, in a bit of a hugfest, is at least becoming just a tad smarter. Slight edge to him in this one.
Cote, no question
not the best fight, but a win for cote.
Cote drags him down because Godard had ducked his head so he wouldn't get tagged with that left again. Can't blame Cote for how it ended.
very slight edge cote...a 5...
Cote likes to get inside the bigger opponents. He probably learned that from Huggy Bear and BGL. That's the way they fight. Get off Cote's back. He's a crazy SOB and holds his own almost always. Tuesday night he'll get revenge on Huggy Bear!
cote gets the decision
Is'nt Godard hugging? Win Cote
Win for Cote.. but that joker Biron gave the Pens the last laugh in the game.
Cote was smart to get in a few shots and get out of dodge. I am a huge Flyers fan but Godard is def the better fighter. Smart fight by Cote.
total fecal matter. hugfest, brashear fighting tactics. horrible from both fighters. Draw.
Cote in a close one. I don't agree with the comments about the hugfest. Cote has been one of the most exciting but least successful fighters in the NHL. Seems like he has changed his style a little and actually has won a couple fights against some top fighters.
