Never said Fitzy's the hw champ of the A or the greatest etc. A guy who went toe to toe and handled himself quite well against Orr is far from sucking. He's had a rough year this year, he'd tell you that himself, and anyone can see that. But I don't believe he's nearly as bad as people are making him out to be. That's not to say he hasn't had terrible showings this year either. I'd say his last win was Schnell who is no slouch either. Problem is that was back in November.
Funny thing is, Cote was the same way with fighting guys and we all loved him but this guy is no different and its "he sucks". Get's old after awhile.
We all know once Mather's shows up things will be a bit different. It's ashame the Flyers aren't going out and signing guys like Recker to contracts like they use to with Pete Vandermeer, Boulerice, etc. We can all agree that the organization has become softer. (look no further than Lavi.)
i will go on record saying i hated cote to. He ALWAYS was exciting to watch only cuz he always wanted to go toe to toe, but he lost like 80 percent of his fights. I think in my own opinion i was just spoiled with the dominance we had in brashear. We havent had anything close to him since he left
