. @SabresStats: Setting The Tone

Remember when the Sabres started the 2006-07 season with 10 straight victories?  They outscored their opponents 49-23 in those 10 games.  They never looked back and rode that momentum all the way to the Presidents Cup.  That was a different team and a different time.  Only Drew Stafford and Patrick Kaleta (who only played 7 games that year) remain from that team. Last year...

Sabres forward Patrick Kaleta out one month

The Sabres practiced for nearly two hours today in First Niagara Center, taking only about a 10-minute break between sessions. They still have more than 30 players on the roster so the long workout was required for players to get in their necessary reps but coach Ted Nolan said players will be shipped out, either to junior or Rochester, in the next day or so. Two players who won...

Why Ryan Miller calling out Patrick Kaleta is a good thing

You may recall Buffalo Sabres noted dirty play guy Patrick Kaleta got suspended for five games for nearly breaking Mike Richards' neck against the boards. Upon his return from suspension, interim Sabres coach Ron Rolston benched Kaleta, as an extension of his punishment, presumably to send a point. I guess it kind of worked, because Kaleta was upset. Not necessarily remorseful...

Patrick Kaleta is the symptom of a greater disease

The hockey world took to bashing Patrick Kaleta with a hint of glee after his reckless, dangerous hit on Brad Richards in the first tilt of 2013 between the Buffalo Sabres and the New York Rangers. They said what you’d normally expect when a player of Kaleta’s reputation does anything dumb. Get him out of the game, he’s useless, etc. He’s become the new WORST PLAYER EVER...

A Day in the Life of Patrick Kaleta

Patrick Kaleta is a notorious coward and turtle. The guy wouldn't fight someone face to face or try to fight someone his own size if you gave him a million dollars. If you told him to hit someone like Chara or Thornton and then not run away and he'd end world hunger, he'd still run. He just doesn't have an ounce of respect, bravery or courage in him.He is a talentless...
