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...

Kevin Freiheit: Kaleta on his way out?

Last June, I wrote an article about Patrick Kaleta and how there may not be room for him on the roster. (You can read it here - "Is Kaleta's future in Buffalo in jeopardy?") Looking back at that post, I ask that same question again, but this time, I think Kaleta is more at risk for losing his spot. This is what I had to say about Kaleta last year: "In...

He just doesn't have an ounce of respect, bravery or courage in him.He is a talentless...
