After flattening Kaleta in a shoulder to shoulder competition... ...the "great Dane" takes one too many overconfident crosschecks only to find out the hard way that A) Kaleta is a lefty And B) that he can really throw them... when frightened
If Kaleta wants to continue this way, he must lose that windshield.
Impressive showing by Kaleta. He was really pounding the $hit out of Lauridsen.
Lauridsen asked for it by continuing with the cross checks and Kaleta delivered the @ss whoopin! Who is the homo who voted for Lauridsen?
Full disclosure - Sabres Fan That being said, most of anti-Kaleta comments are false. If you hate Kaleta bc of the way he plays (takes runs at people). That's fair. I didn't even like him earlier in his career and I'm a huge Sabres fan. 1. Saying he never fights - FALSE. He doesn't fight after every hit, but name one player who does? 2. Saying he never wins fights - FALSE - look at his fight log. Gregory Campbell, Derek Dorsett, & now Lauridson have been severe beatdowns. & according to the log he wins at least 50% of fights. 3. Referencing fights vs Lucic & Colton Orr... Lucic was a clear loss. He was over-matched, end of story. Orr wasn't a fight it was a jumping. Orr passed up on Scott & ran down Kaleta. Orr shouldn't be going after smaller players, but hey do what you want. 4. Saying he should lose the visor: 73% of the NHL wears visors. Kaleta has never claimed to be a fighter, he fights when needed/wants to. This isn't the 1970's, players wear visors to protect their vision. Look at Marc Staal. 5. Saying he should fight more to be accountable for the big hits he dishes out. Again, it's not the 70's. Much to the chagrin of people who frequent this site, there just isn't a fight after every hit. And If his hits are illegal or over the line why isn't he penalized or suspended more? I am in full agreement if you think he's a RAT, HE IS. I would hate him if I were a fan of any other team than the Sabres. But let's be objective about his fighting skills which for his weight class are above average. ...and now I get killed with a million comments. Bring it!
Great to see lauridsen pick and fight and then get the crap beat out of him
good to see kaleta finally answering the bell after one of his big collisions but this lauridsen kid looks like this was hist first game outside of sweden. lauridsen's sucking is the story here.
did i hear the announcer say kaleta is one of the better fighters in the nhl?
Win the scrub
i hate kaleta but he won easy. hey Snoka, lose the homophobic slurs. it's 2013.
Kaleta just feeds Lauridsen with lefts.
Lauridsen was hardly the Lord of Discipline with that pathetic display. Kaleta and Orr have been matching bookends agitating the Flyers all afternoon, including a roughing call on Lauridsen for shoving down Ott, who acted like he was shot.
Kaleta gets off to a fast start and it was over before Lauridson ever knew what happened ... Nice showboating by Kaleta (again). ...and you wonder why he's so popular ?
broad street bully he is not
Kaleta gets hammered behind the net by the BIG newcomer from Denmark, and Kaleta does not like it. Kaleta then proceeds to hammer the living crap out of Lauridsen while giving up about 5 inches.
Lauridsen just won the belt for the new worst fighter in the league congrats!
5 for fighting (both) 5 for receiving (Lauridsen). Get a grip dude! Gotta show up better than that (or at all).
Wow is Kaleta is one tough SOB: visor? check. Lousy opponent? check. Equals Kaleta is a douche bag.
Kaleta left hooked him to the deck.
Love to see a Flyer get dominated even if it is by Kaleta.
Kaleta can fight when he gets that left hand going. Easy win as he pounds a guy who is about a half a foot taller than he is. Win: Kaleta
This must expalin the glow that was coming across lake Ontario last night - the Buffalo fans were burning Tonawanda in celebration of Kumleta winning a fight.
Kaleta plays with HEART!!!! rarely does he instigate!!!!! his game is checking!!!! and when challenged,,,,,, beats the crap out of challengers. to me he is the guy you hate ONLY when he is not on your team! and I'm happy he's on my team!!!!!! who's next???
Kaleta took it to the rookie. No surprise really.
6.6' 220ishhh... Lauridsen. Get ready big boy when you droped them !! Kaleta just teach him good. Hate to admit it but he did.
Booom Kaleta was throwing some haymakers!!!
Lauridson starts it and Kaleta finishes it ...with authority. TKO for Kaleta over A$$lord, who gets welcomed to the NHL with a brutal beating. What ever happened to the "Broad Street Bullies"? This Flyer team is softer than a babies a$$. Flyers have mailed it in this year in every department and are playing like disgraceful, gutless organization right now. And where's that ridiculous little [email protected] Rinaldo when you need him? Ha, ha, ha!
clear winner to Kaleta
lauridsen didnt like the hit and got himself into his 1st nhl fight.kaleta used his fast hands against lauridsen's size and got the win over this big kid i've never heard of...gave it a 7
Lauidsen is a rookie and he has only played 8 games. I'll bet Kaleta couldnt beat Lauidsen again but for this one, win Kaleta.
All Kaleta - Lauridsen a big body that can't fight. The kind of player the Flyers like.
Never heard of Lauridsen and I hate hate the Flyers but was cheering for him like a maniac anyway. How is Kaleta still alive? He's got the balls to wipe his hands like he accomplished something worthy but hides from anyone with an experience. A true pussy and a retard.
To lose to somebody like Kaleta that bad is flat out disgraceful. I' m a little embarrassed about being a die hard Flyers fan.So ashamed. No Flyer should be pounded by Kaleta.Period! Ugh! Ready to vomit!
Puketric Kaletta with the win somehow..........if ever there was a person more deserved of a good beating it is Special K . What a loser.
Typical Kaleta picking his spots some 6'6 guy named Oliver from Denmark and has never had a nhl fight!!!!! Kaleta is a joke! anyone see Orr grab the little puke a few weeks back? shows his real colors...
Kaleta with the beat down.
Kaleta did a lot better here than he usually does against guys who know how to fight. A big time beat down but be a man and lose the windshield...
Pit Bull mauls Great Dane.....about as one-sided a fight as you'll ever see. Kaleta with the W and a one point deduction for his classless breach of etiquette on his way to the sin bin!
Um... Well when u put an elbow up like a puss to avoid a clean hit. Then cross check the guy while he is down. He should jump up n pound the crap out of you. 9-0 punches easy win for Kaketa.
Lauridsen starts it, but Kaleta finishes it with ease. Kaleta one of the better fighters? Not exactly, but nice attempt to ease the defeat of Lauridsen. Hilarious to hear them knock his "showboating".
Nice job by Pat.. Kaleta is under estimated as a fighter.. and as for the visor, seeing how he really didn't have time to take his helment off, i don't see why there is a need to complain. Easy win for Kaleta as he pounds another philadelphia wanna be tough guy.
That dude is twice Kaleta's size and Patty just manhandled him. That a boy Kaleta. Win.
Kaleta threw so many lefts Lauridsen begged for a right. Kaleta is starting to get the knack for this, maybe Scott and Ott gave him a few lessons. Colton Orr couldn't hurt him a few weeks ago maybe boosting his spirt. Sabres should have played like this a month ago.
huge win kaleta, startiing to back up his hitting im impressed.
Clear win for Kaleta, a domination however... How can you be a scraper wearing a windshield as some say here??? Kaleta was ready fron te start and stole a page out of Brown's book. Was he afraid for his life after losing his helmet???
Kaleta wins. Easily. good show buy Kaleta. Might be better than I thought.
PK 36 trying to rile up a dismal Sabres roster. Easy W Kaleta.
Otto maddock sorry to hurt your feeling's but the douch bag Sabres kicked the Flyers ass all around the rink!
Total domination for Kaleta, can't believe someone vote for Lauridsen !!
kaleta with the win. flyers have no fighter.rosehill looked away from scott couple times. have fun with golf flyers
Kaleta kicked his ass he'll think next time before throwing those crosschecks. To those attacking the windshield notice in the beginning of the fight he takes his helmet off... the shield is to protect him blocking shots (which he does endlessly). I dont wear one but if it makes him more comfortable and therefore a better player especially doing his magic on the PK then by all means!
Any time a Philthy player gets a beat down, it's a good fight to me.
lol @ PHI commentators on a national game. They're just trying to lighten the PHL fans because Lauridsen got his butt kicked.
Not sure why Lauridsen had to chop him after the hit. He actually made Kaleta look foolish by pushing him aside when Kaleta tried for the big hit. Unfortunately Lauridsen got white washed with 11 consecutive lefts. I liked the dust off of the hands. Don't care what anyone says Kalets is great. Any team would love to have him....
How could anyone vote that Lauridsen won this fight?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
Kaleta BOMBED on dude
Lauridsen should think twice next time he thinks of dropping the gloves. He was totally overmatched in this one.
Announcer is an idiot... "I don't like all that showboating going to the box" Anyone the voted for Lauridsen should be banned from this site because they are just fanboys, not fans of the fight.
Connie Kaleta goes southpaw and Oliver eats a bunch... Welcome to the NHL....
Yes, Kaleta beat the crap out of Lauridsen, but he is not "one of the better fighters in the NHL" ... stupid commentator.
All Kaleta, what a idiot, I see McGrattan get a misconduct for playing to the crowd, gah!
I give Lauridsen credit for standing up for himself but he paid the price big time. Kaleta was throwing them fast and furious here.
Kaleta won a fight? Really? Yup, he throws some lefts for a big win
It amazes me how many guys pick fights with Kaleta without having any idea that he's left-handed. Absolute beat down by Patty who in my opinion can celebrate all he wants after pounding the crap out of a guy who is easily half a foot taller.
I love that Lauridsen started it, but kept pushing his luck til Kaleta just pummeled the shit out of him
Kaleta made quick work of a much, much bigger Lauridsen who probably has no business being in the NHL but with a$$h0le Holmgren being the GM, what do you expect? His acquisition and playing Rosehill just another example of his goon mentality. He couldn't play hockey and neither can his goons. He needs to concentrate on dressing talented players, not ones suited for the WBA. He should've been fired two years ago and definitely after the Bryzgalov signing. BTW, it's Laviolette's time to go too. This is his 4th year and the past several Flyers coaches didn't last more than that.
Kaleta easy win. Kaleta is easily one of the best fighters in the league, in his weight class. He's no heavyweight but man he can chuck em. Put him against any middleweight guy in the league & he does very well.
When you get beat up that bad by Kaleta, you shouldn't be fighting anyone.
I guess u have to give it to Kaleta. Was he punching or slapping? His antics after the fight were weird. He is no tough guy and the Sabres won't make the playoffs. goofy little smurf....
Draw. I don't care, I'm not voting for Kaleta. Where was Rosehill to answer Scott, Flyers fans? You guys have one of the very worst spot-picking teams in the league.
...I guess this answers the trivia question -- "Who's the ONLY player in the NHL Patrick Kaleta can actually whip"?.......
the showboating IS garbage but then so is every sabre anyway. win douchebag.
