Default Lightning Sign and Recall JP Cote

Good for JP. He's worked his ass off in the AHL and to see him get a NHL deal is awesome. He'll add some toughness and veteran leadership too the blue line. Real Cool Story.

If you want to see how far Cote has come:

That sound you hear -- is that the sound of Cote leapfrogging both Barbie and Turnovermania on the depth chart?

Eh, people don't read the title anyways.

Could it be that Yzerman is sick of seeing Bishop get beat up?

A bit of history...

Quote:
Côté was drafted by the Toronto Maple Leafs 265th overall in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft, from the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

Côté returned to North America for the 2011–12 season, initially signing with the Ontario Reign of the third-tier ECHL. On November 18, 2011, after 10 games with the Reign, Côté was loaned to make his return in the AHL with the Norfolk Admirals. After solidifying a position within the Admirals' defence, Côté was signed to an AHL contract for the remainder of the season on December 14, 2011.[5] Côté contributed with 15 points in 58 games with the record-setting Admirals and played in every post-season game to help Norfolk capture their first Calder Cup, and collect his second.

With the affiliation between the Admirals and the Tampa Bay Lightning ceased, Côté followed the championship team and signed with new AHL affiliate, the Syracuse Crunch for the 2012–13 season on June 20, 2012.

If you think about how many guys go 8 years between their NHL stints. That's the real cool part too me. I also believe he was a defensive partner with both Gudas and Barberio in the AHL so he should have some familiarity. I know Espo was raving about his play during the preseason on Lightning Radio so I think he is a great addition. Very reliable and always the first one in too stick up for his goalie and teammates.

I honestly wonder why he wasn't up sooner for this very reason. Maybe because syracuse needs him. He's going to be a nice bottom pairing guy for us when he's in.
