Flyers Ink Jones and Cote?

Monday, June 30, 2008 ·

FlyersCap is reporting that the Flyers have signed two of their restricted free agents to deals in principle. Randy Jones has signed on for 3 years, 4 million (with an annual cap hit of 1.333) and Riley Cote has signed a 3 year deal worth between $1.7 and $2.4 million. *see the updated cap numbers.

Randy Jones improved immensly throughout the year and led all Flyers defensemen in +/- for the playoffs (+6). In the regular season, Jones had 5 goals and 26 assists for 31 points.

Riley Cote is an "enforcer" and has been labeled as the best pound-for-pound fighter in the game, according to opposing players. Cote did not see much time during the post season, but he did lead all Flyers players in PIM with 202 in the regular season. He's a hard nose player and the type of player you'd like to have on your fourth line. He's definitely a fan-favorite in Philly.

In other news, the Flyers have offered Patrick Thoresan a qualifying offer. He will become a restricted free agent tomorrow.


A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
