Kaleta Hearing With Shanahan Today

I completely missed the play they are talking about.

Buffalo Sabres forward Patrick Kaleta will meet with NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan today to discuss a head-butting incident on Jakub Voracek from Wednesday night's game against the Philadelphia Flyers.

The incident occurred five minutes into the first period during a battle for the puck along the boards. Kaleta stepped helmet-first into Voracek, catching the Philadelphia player on the helmet and visor and knocking him backwards.

No penalty was called and play continued.

Kaleta is a dirty bastard. He's got a history of cheap shots and suspensions, including a previous headbut.

Yes he does. What kind of ticked me off is that I believe it was Gaustad goes after Giroux and there is no retaliation? Sorry but screw the NHL and their rules. When you have a big guy like that who is several skating strides above a goon going after your best player it calls for swift and immediate retaliation. I thought that Shelley would at least talk to him and try to get him to go

Yeah, that really pissed me off as well. I was chatting at the time, and we were all like..time for Shelley, Rinaldo and Simmonds, if that's how the Sabres wanna play. If the Flyers got up 4-1, that game would have gotten ugly-quick. IMO.

Gazoo, I was really happy to see that Shelley's presence and intimidation factor prevented Kaleta from skating around taking cheap shots on our players. I'm sure Couturier, Voracek, and Giroux are all thanking Jody today for all the protection he provided last night. All that protection and such a useful, multi-skilled game he brings otherwise.

FWIW, they showed Shelley as the team was leaving the ice at the end of the period just staring over at the Buffalo players while everyone else went down the chute. Seemed pretty obvious that if he was on the ice, he would have done something.

Of course, nobody puts the goon on the line with your skilled guys anymore.

LMAO! I think he actually managed to accept a break out pass AND advance the play/puck. No..seriously, I think he really did. Once.

Rather ironic that the 1st shift that he is NOT with Shelley, he scored a goal.

Irony: (n) an outcome of events contrary to what was, or might have been, expected.

You're saying it was unexpected he would score when he was separated from Shelley? ;)

How does Rick like a team with a player like this?

I don't give a rats ass what he thinks.....Rick is a basket case. Mentally challenged retard. To think I was actually trying to be nice and help the dude with his drug questions. The dud actually flooded my backup e-mail accout with like 10 messages in a 6 hour period wanting to know why i was not responding to him. LOL

Glad he cannot bother us here
