DID'NT THINK THE WRECKER WAS GOOD ENOUGH TO TRADE WITH COTE.EVEN THOUGH IM AN ISLES FAN I LOVE THE WAY COTE GOES WITH EVERYONE.IM SURPRISED TO GIVE THE DECISION TO JR

Posted by flyerfighter73 on March 30, 2009 at 05:38 PM

I am still a huge Cote fan but he just takes way too many punches.

Posted by antoski8 on March 30, 2009 at 12:45 AM

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.

Posted by smwarpig63 on March 29, 2009 at 11:29 AM

I anguished over this one for a while. The punch count was so close. I originally gave the win to rechlicz but after watcher a diferent angle replay, early in the fight cote landed a nicce jab-jab-uppercut-jab sequence. All four punches landed flush. But considering the nice comback by rechilcz I still say draw.

Posted by rusheetinme on March 29, 2009 at 01:03 PM

Great fight. Both fighters threw and received a good deal off punches. DRAW.

Posted by Strelec on March 29, 2009 at 01:36 PM

Posted by mcb789 on March 29, 2009 at 02:52 AM

cote and rechlicz both threw alot of great bombs in this fight!! i would love to have both of these players on my team!! THE RANGERS AND BRUINS SHOULD TAKE SOME FIGHTING LESSONS FROM THE FLYERS AND ISLANDERS!!! THEN MAYBE THEY FINALLY CAN WIN A FIGHT!!

Posted by hal29 on March 31, 2009 at 08:26 AM

i hate cote and i give him the win,at the beginning he landed some shots,rechlicz hit all helmet and jut helmet,atleast cote landed his,now people are voting on who throws more punches then who is the more affective fighter??what was the score!!!

Posted by Tanqueray on March 29, 2009 at 08:40 PM

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).

Posted by sasso09 on March 29, 2009 at 08:51 AM

Really good fight. Rechlicz landed a bit more, Cote did more damage, landed the harder shots.... Rechlicz face is sore, Cotes hands are sore. If you're judging this fight by shots landed, Rechlicz wins, if you're judging by who's gonna feel shittier in the morning, cote wins. DRAW

Posted by Flyers17 on April 11, 2009 at 03:35 AM

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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by wannago on March 29, 2009 at 05:00 PM

Ladies and gentlemen the new Jeff Odgers... Miley Coochie...

Posted by SirYohans on March 29, 2009 at 08:09 PM

Cote can't fight... Go Wrecker!

Posted by staceyb on March 29, 2009 at 06:50 AM

These two lined up right after the Carcillo-Thompson fight so you know they weren't going to exchange recipes. Pretty good scrap but Rechlicz wins it. Cote takes about two shots for each one he throws, typical of his efforts this season. He just flails away aimlessly.

Posted by ahartnack on March 30, 2009 at 07:14 AM

Cote is Kotex and a punching bag. Don't fight anymore, Riley. One of these days you are really going to get hurt.

Posted by trpaulson on March 30, 2009 at 02:29 PM

Rechlicz wins. Cote seemed to want to hang on. The film shot of his hand might explain that.

Posted by nicknines on March 29, 2009 at 07:23 PM

first time i seen cote hold on. im a ranger fan ,so i hate both teams but i love cote he doesnt win much but he loves to stand back and throw them. he reminds me of my boy nick kypreos.

Posted by mikebflorida on March 30, 2009 at 10:10 AM

Wrecker lands a bunch of lefts on Cote who fails to answer back. Cote is not looking good at all right now.

Posted by Towmater on March 29, 2009 at 06:07 PM

Cote really does have to start earlier, Win Rech.

Posted by MajorGroove on March 29, 2009 at 07:51 PM

Started out great but after 20 seconds turned into a cuddler.

Posted by cecil127 on March 29, 2009 at 05:46 PM

cote sure can take a punch. you'd think wreck could put him down sooner seeing as how cote is completely sad as a fighter/player. wreck with the win by a hair......i will go on record as saying that was the turning point of that game....awesome flyers win in a great game that absolutely needed that scrap following thomspsons beat down.

Posted by Bahjay on March 31, 2009 at 02:57 PM

Wonder how the right side of Cote's face is feeling from all those lefts!

Posted by paddyd on March 29, 2009 at 07:31 PM

Cote fans....give the man a break. He he takes a licken and keeps on ticking. The mans face looks like hamburg with Racoon eyes. If he makes it to the end of the season it will be a miracle.. He's all heart but a beaten man.

Posted by BooSanta on March 29, 2009 at 07:29 PM

Well earned spoils to WRecklicz for this marathon. Both warriors landed heavy bombs but WRecklicz landed more alot more. We later learn that a cote haymaker that landed early in the bout caused the dislocated pinky we see as he sat in the penalty box afterwards. after that Cote didn't have a chance Wrecklicz appeared in control regardless. Not sure why Cote wasn't booted for the jersey tie as he landed his best shot after the Jersey came off. Looks like Wrecklicz manged to rip the tiedown out. Isles fans got a real monster to root for. This wasn't that close with Wreck is sporting a cut and Cote is sporting his self proclaimed "catcher's mit" face.

Posted by Blackhawk23 on March 29, 2009 at 10:02 PM

Win Rech, in a good fight. Cote is on a bit of a losing streak but the guy is tough as nails and normally puts on a good show win or lose.

Posted by tattooedkingpin on March 29, 2009 at 09:29 PM

The wrecker was on top of his game in this one. W to rechlicz.

Posted by Snowrider on March 30, 2009 at 12:12 AM

I think Cote is getting tired

Posted by kneumann on March 30, 2009 at 10:06 AM

Cote as usual fights with courage and had a dislocated finger very early on. You don't see Riley switch to his left hand often. Right hand was injured. I like Cote in any rematch.

Posted by tiburon4 on April 02, 2009 at 12:42 AM

Could be a good one: well duh! Started out great, turned into wrestling but ended allright. Rechlicz with the narrow win.

Posted by firefightnchuck on April 12, 2009 at 11:26 AM

this guy should give it up before he gets hurt bad he just can`t fight on ice

Posted by bruiseyoureye on March 30, 2009 at 12:19 PM

rechlitz beat the living shiit out of cote......now that was an ass spanking

Posted by GSP09 on March 29, 2009 at 04:01 PM

Good one , Rechlicz with more punches for the win, but Cote was not bad .one of the longest one of the year.

Posted by runky on March 30, 2009 at 09:50 PM

Great scrap but man Cote's hand was messed. The Wrecker must have been hurting too because there were some serious helmet shots. Joel gets the win in a good scrap.

Posted by ogie ogiltorpe on March 30, 2009 at 05:46 PM

Another Cote fight and another Riley loss...love the guy but he must have been a window washer previously...he's always trying to pin his opponent against the glass...Wrecker looks good here, looking forward to seeing more in the future

Posted by crosscheck52 on March 30, 2009 at 06:58 AM

Good fight. One thing about Riley is that his fights are fun to watch. Edge to Rechlicz.

Posted by theKill280 on April 01, 2009 at 01:04 AM

most punches from both hit the back of the head. joel with the win tho

Posted by pepsigenerate on March 30, 2009 at 09:02 AM

rechlicz dominated this fight with ease,and he was also the more aggresser in this fight.Cote just hangin on trying to show like he,s swinging away but uneffective.

Posted by Rockhound6165 on March 29, 2009 at 07:08 PM

Good fight but Rechlicz wins. Cote, for a supposed goon doesn't seem to win many fights. And I'm a Flyers fan.

Posted by Behn Wilson on March 29, 2009 at 05:46 PM

Wow! That was the total domination of an established heavyweight, by a nasty, lefty, up and comer. I like Cotes' strange ability, that allows him to, even when losing... give the impression that he could turn it around at any minute. Clearly not this time, though.

Posted by shrk33 on March 29, 2009 at 04:55 PM

solid fight, especially the flurry at the start. Rechlicz had the edge in a pretty close and exciting bout

Posted by cardiffgiant on March 29, 2009 at 05:07 PM

Great fight! Rechlicz had the edge, and seemed to have a lot more energy than Cote late in the scrap.

Posted by Jellyczar on March 30, 2009 at 11:02 PM

RECHLICZ all the way....though Cote did actually fight a bit

Posted by ETR on March 29, 2009 at 05:51 PM

Rechlicz controlled the fight and landed some good lefts for the win....

Posted by Lucy Brown on March 29, 2009 at 09:32 PM

the guys that voted for cote are total chodes. c'mon back to reality morons. I dont like either team so i could care less who wins here. Rechlicz clearly won. Cote is a bum that can take a shot thats it. cote is the chuck wepner of hockey fights. he nick name should be the bayonne bleeder.

Posted by PKisel34 on March 29, 2009 at 10:17 AM

Excellent scrap, vey long. Rechlicz landed the more meaningful punches.

Posted by bruins rule on March 29, 2009 at 04:18 PM

very long great fight to watch.have to give the edge to joel.

Posted by Awesome-0 on March 29, 2009 at 10:31 PM

Who is this Rechlicz character? Good scrap- Rechlicz with the W.

Posted by NewYorker328 on March 30, 2009 at 12:43 AM

GREAT FIGHT...COTE IS TOUGH BUT NOT THE BEST IN LEAGUE AT ALL! GOOO JOEL, BECOMEING A TRUE FIGHTER!!! LETS GO ISLANDERS!!!!

Posted by carolyn1946 on March 29, 2009 at 09:48 PM

this is a good fight. clear winner with alot hits. Rechicz...

Posted by bkmoore18 on March 30, 2009 at 03:00 PM

Rechlicz was dropping left-handed bombs

Posted by keepersc06 on March 29, 2009 at 04:17 PM

Great Fight, Couple of big bruisers going at it. Slow, long, and gotta give it to Rechlicz for landing a couple more.

Posted by nikcanada on March 31, 2009 at 01:29 AM

Old school Campbell Conference brawl as Rechlicz makes up for his lame attempt to bring down a tree like John Scott. Both guys were throwing hard as Rechlicz landed with more consistency.

Posted by Your Mom on March 29, 2009 at 04:20 PM

Cotex is a wuss - totally schooled by Rechlicz! Not even close! Even undressed the dude. How can you Philly homers see this as a cotex win?! He gets hit 4-5 times at beginning of fight before he lands a couple of solid blows. Then, that's almost it! He is tooled the rest of the way while he tries to remove Rs helmet. Undressed - drops to his knees - what are you guys watching?!

Posted by 54Brawling on November 02, 2009 at 09:16 AM

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!

Posted by mvukota on March 30, 2009 at 12:02 AM

The Wrecker with the impressive win over rocky racoon

Posted by mvigs on March 29, 2009 at 06:00 PM

Good Scrap! The southpaw Rechlicz gets the W.

Posted by powerball on March 31, 2009 at 04:05 PM

cote is just taking up a roster spot. he can't win a fight anymore.

Posted by speedy17 on March 29, 2009 at 08:40 PM

WOW...............................Great fight .................absoletely .definetely cote is pound for pound the best in the league.................but.......the future is the future.............if...this guy keeps his mind on playing hockey..........not just fighting....................and listening to his coaches............he can easily be the next david clarkson or bobby nystrom................no doubt..............

Posted by islesfankf on March 30, 2009 at 03:53 PM

good fight joel!!

Posted by kryon24 on March 30, 2009 at 10:16 AM

Another entertaining fight from Wrecker and Cote. The way you are suppose to do it (just not get hit so much Cote). Both landed good shots but Wrecker with the power behind them. All the credit to Cote for staying in there and returning fire under that assault. Neither wanted to hold on, they just stood back and let em fly.

Posted by Mike_O on April 03, 2009 at 08:59 PM

Rechlicz with the win in a great fight. Cote can really take a punch. Rechlicz for 21 years old may be the real deal.

Reclicz edge in a good solid fight. Both dished it out but mainly Rechlcz. One good equally matched fighters.

Posted by PeteyBatz on March 29, 2009 at 09:48 AM

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!

Posted by Oil Can Henry on March 30, 2009 at 01:49 PM

Not pretty, but Rechlicz gets the win. All Cote does is grab-and-hold, hoping the other guy runs outta' gas.

Posted by marinermoose38 on March 30, 2009 at 07:58 PM

Gotta give Cote credit... his face takes an absolute beating on a nightly basis, but he's always game! Clear win for Rechlicz here... he landed pretty close to 10 good ones.

Posted by jcstokes on March 29, 2009 at 05:42 PM

Cote gets his ass kicked again.

Posted by neutralfighter on March 29, 2009 at 04:48 PM

not even close. How can anyone say this is close. Cotex maybe landed 3 decent punches.

Posted by BigBadBruins68 on April 05, 2009 at 01:31 PM

And Cote loses yet again. I guess winning isn't important to him.

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on March 05, 2015 at 03:02 AM
