First post, just want to say hi to the board. I'm a big hockey fan and look forward to posting.--Great bout. Maybe the heavyweight bout of the yr. This fight went on a long time and neither guy gave up. Gotta give the win to Rechlicz, he landed more shots and he did more damage. Both skated away with bruises on their faces, but a few minutes later in the penalty box Rechlicz is sporting a cut near his r-eye, and Cote's face looks like hamburger. Cote's knuckles were torn up, but that must have been from some helmet shots. Cote looks worse for the wear and is still winded a few minutes later while Rechlicz is pretty composed sitting in the box. Great fight by both players!
close fight, cant really decide on a winner here. big fan of cote but, he just sucks ass this year. i dont think he has won a fight all year. he looks like he should be a beast but, this has not been his year. atleast he shows up though, credit for that. good long fight.
As a Flyers Fan i have to give the egde to Rechlicz, but cote was hanging in and landing some good one's and at the end cote landed a good upper cut. All you people out there talking sit on cote can eat a D**k because even thoe he dosenot win alot of his fights he will drop the gloves with any body and will go toe to toe with anyone. So get off of his nut's!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rechlicz landed some nice lefts and seemed to want to stay on his feet more to continue the fight. It appears Cote tried a few times to take Rechlicz down a few times (sometimes you get approval points for being on top on a takedown) but Rechlicz stood him up and kept pounding. It is even more impressive since Cote's helmet was still on and Rechlicz lost his and he still stayed in there to dish out punishment. Nice fight and great to see big southpaws go at it!
Okay, normally I think the criticism of Cote on this site is valid. But there's obviously a lot of anti-Flyer bias on this board. Cote destroyed this dude. He flailed wildly trying to get Cote off him, but Cote owned him start to finish. Rechlicz didn't quit, but his face looked like mine when my wife flips on a chick flick. Serious pain. You guys have to give Cote the nod when he actually wins one (which is rare).
