They want him out of the league
I feel bad for Kaleta. The Sabres have never given him a chance to show what he could do if he played on the third line. He bleeds for this team. That is what is missing with so many of Regiers picks. Too many soft players and Euros who only want to playpretty hockey, which doesn't work yet Regier keeps drafting them.
I would have banned him from hockey. Kaleta got off easy in my book. He's an idiot. Now John Scott. (another idiot) What do you do? Whatever, I'm a one track mind…FIRE REGEIR AND ROLSTON!!!
Fast Fact Poll
What do I hate more? This horrid hockey team or WGR talk shows. GOOD QUESTION. I vote WGR talk shows. NO HELP AT ALL WHAT SO EVER REGARDING THE SUFFERING FANS WHO DON'T WANT THIS GENERAL MANAGER AND AND COACH.
Page 7; item #3 tells you where the nhl is going with this
Just like in the nfl, they are preparing defense against law suits 10 years from now. Hitting is bad. Don't do it.
STOP STOP STOP
STOP defending these no talent hockey players!!! just because he's a hometown boy doesn't mean he can play hockey. he sucks. PERIOD. once they take fighting out of the game all of these useless players will go away
what hockey have u watched
i'm 57 and been watching this game since the french connection and this game was played like that for years and past years other players played that way also they even put miller in a concussion and no suspension seams every time buffalo gets physical we get a suspension. as for powder puff players la fontain was a great player didn't hit but could put the puck in the net was hit and got a concussion and that player got on suspensions ???
Bring Kaleta back
He powers up the team and works very hard, thats more then I can say for most of the new guys.
"Proceeding gradually, essentially gliding." Are we talking about a figure skater or a hockey player?
The need for pages and pages of legalese just shows how the NHL just isn't fun anymore.
THE DIRTY "BUCKETHEAD" IS THE MOST DESPISED PLAYER IN NHL SINCE...
KENNY "THE RAT" LINSEMAN! In fact KALETA'S even MORE despised than "the rat", imagine that. WALMART is the ONLY reason THE DIRTY "BUCKETHEAD" is in the NHL. Judging from NBCSN's reaction the other night, the NHL DISPISES WALMART too. No surprise there...
Congratulations to Darcy Regeir and thanks to TERRY "BIG FAN" PEGULA for driving the WALMART BUS into the GUTTER!!!!! Don't forget "THE BRAND"... "WALMART= THEEE BIGGEST NICKLE AND DIM LOoSER FRANCHISE IN PRO SPORTS"!!! Hey... What have I done wrong... you may ELITE ME, EXTEND ME, "HIT ME FROM BEHIND", but please don't block my posts. THANK YOU SABERS! LOOK WHO'S LAFF-in NOW!
Kaleta / Scott - Waste of a Roster Spot
I personally feel that Kaleta and Scott are a waste of a roster spot on the current team make up. The only reason why they go after the head is because they cannot skate backwards and throw a hip check. Or another viable reason is both were hit in the head too many times and cannot comprehend this. Either way, it's hard for me to believe that Rolston wants these guys around to "teach" them.
Good going Darcy as this mess is only going to continue to fester until Pegula and Black step in and clean it up for you. I hope the broom is big enough for a 'arena' cleaning, forget the house.
I guess Kaleta should have told them he was scared and then tried to take the guys head off with his stick and then spear him a couple times while he was being held.This goes back to the famous NO GOAL.There are no one set of rules across the league.Bettman and his cronies make them up along with the punishments as they go.From what I've been reading most people want to watch figure skating instead of hockey.Kaleta also happens to be a big part of penalty killing and is very good at it.I'm not saying that guys shouldn't be punished for cheap shots,but the punishments should be set across the league, not how Bettman and his cronies feel that day.It seems there are rules for guys like Kaleta and a different set of rules for guys like,Crosby and Kessel.Sometimes it seems like the rules change just depending on what team you play on.
Plain and simple
If this keeps up, the Sabres ARE NOT going to make the playoffs for the third straight season.
John Scott Hit Was Clean !
Look at the OTHER front side video on YouTube. Shoulder to Shoulder then arm flails up from contact.
It's a little after 10 AM Friday 10/25/13
The Shill Express is in full mode on WGR.
What about Zdeno Chara.....
OOOOPPP's!!!! I forgot. He's a Boston Bruin - totally different set of standards. I wonder what the great Mike Milbury has to say about it given the way that he spouted off about John Scott.
Any trades yet???
It's time to move Miller, Vanek, and Stafford now. Waive Ennis and McCormick. We then would be rebuilding. WAIT…WAIT…WAIT…HOLD IT!!!! Fire Regeir and Rolston first. A new GM will do it. Enough said.
RE: what hockey have u watched
Well since you claim to have been "watching" hockey since the French connection you apparently didn't learn one bit of anything all that time. Secondly I realize that WALMART LOVERS usually NEVER LET "FACTS" GET IN THE WAY of their silliness. Third, I have been "watching" AND "LEARNING" hockey since Punch Imlach was in Toronto and watching since Perreault was DRAFTED. Unlike you, I have been learning.
EXAMPLES of how WRONG YOU ARE: 1. Jamie McCoun SLASHED Lafontaine on his ARM the stick THEN traveled up to his jaw and fractured it, accidently. At that time SLASHING was not as illegal as it is today, and McCoun DID NOT TARGET Patty's HEAD, when you sober up, LOOK IT UP! 2. Today's rules prohibit players from contacting another player's head PERIOD. Scott CLEARLY did that, AND KALETA HABITUALLY does that. Today's rules CLEARLY prohibit contact with a "defenseless" player Scott CLEARLY did that. 3. Rules prohibit a player from CHARGING a player WITHOUT THE PUCK, again Scott CLEARLY was guilty. Lets teach some KALETA crimes, he constantly "hits" players from behind, constantly CHARGES players without the puck EVEN AFTER frequent suspensions. He's a DIRTY PLAYER if there ever was one. Lastly the NHL is sick and tired of years of WALMART whining to the league regarding their LADIES getting pushed around. Golisano's "letter whining against too physical play" to the league a couple of years ago was not received well. My advice to you IS: STOP drinking while you watch hockey from now on and maybe you can actually start LEARNING.
For now learn this: "WALMART = THEEE BIGGEST NICKLE AND DIME LOoSER FRANCHISE IN ALL OF PRO SPORTS"!!! Hey FEEL FREE to ELITE ME, EXTEND ME, "HIT ME FROM BEHIND"; but please don't block my post. Thank You Sabers.
Kaleta gets far more punishment than other players get for similar actions...even players with similar roles on other teams are not penalized as much. One of many examples - Why didn't Lucic get suspended for his hit on all star goalie Ryan Miller?
RE: Fast Fact Poll
You sir are absolutely RIGHT ON! WGR's "CODDLING EVeRYTHING WALMART" is downright SICKENING!! ALL of WGR'S SHILLs are guilty starting with "NOBODY READS PAUL HAMILTON"! As an example of perspective these are the "Bills coaches" WGR has DUMPED on incessantly for the last FIFTEEN YEARS; WADE PHILLIPS, GREG WILLIAMS, MIKE MULLARKEY, RICHARD JAURON, CHAN GAILEY, and soon MARRONE. Is there a pattern???? During the same time, and with a very similar "team performance" record these are the WALMART "coaches" WGR has EQUALLY DUMPED ON.............................................
... WGR is as credible as Terry Pegula. Do what I do, listen only to John Murphy the only sports radio worth having the channel on 550 for. Hope this helps, and always remember... "WALMART = THEEE BIGGEST NICKLE AND DIME LOoSER FRANCHISE IN PRO SPORTS"! C'mon ELITE Me, EXTEND ME "HIT ME FROM BEHIND, but please don't block my post. Thank You Sabers.
And there it is
We found a way to bring Walmart back into this. By the way smartie - it's Sabres, not Sabers. I'm "LAFF-in" at you.
It's business as usual in Buffalo.
Mister Softee is back in form and now below average. 3.06 GAA. No team is interested, I guess.
re: And there it is
Yes...I know that, they just don't deserve to be spelled right. But Hey... what ELSE have I done wrong! Just keep this in mind... "WALMART= THEE BIGGEST NICKLE AND DIME LoOSER FRANCHISE IN PRO SPoRTS"! So go ahead... ELITE ME, EXTEND ME, "HIT ME FROM BEHIND", but please don't block my post. Thanks for noticing AND THANK YOU SABERS! AND LOOK WHO'S LAFF-in NOW!
