"did he leaves his feet? oh boy that close" ARE U KIDDING ME ?

Posted by BuffaloBrawler on October 09, 2009 at 08:43 AM

You clowns are hilarious. Win Hanzal? What fucking fight were you watching? Kaleta landed one punch and Hanzel didn't land shit. It was a crap draw that shouldn't have even gotten majors. 5 minutes for wrastlin'. mrbunghoooool, you're a pud.

Posted by slshbleed on October 09, 2009 at 01:42 AM

Kaleta had good speed before the play develops. When he sees the where the pass is going, Kaleta doesn't even have to take a skating stride. You can't fault a guy for being in the right place and reading a play well. Kaleta's skates don't leave the ice until the hit. He didn't lead with an elbow. I don't mind what Hanzal did either. When your guy gets really creamed, you should stick up for him clean hit or not. I don't think that it was a sucker pass per se. I think some teams will have to make some adjustments on their breakouts against Buffalo.

Nice hit, but the fight (if you even call it that) was a dud!

Posted by Bruins17 on October 10, 2009 at 11:08 AM

Nice hit by Kaleta! I dont think he left his feet to make the hit. Hanzal did what he needed to do to protect his teammate, but the fight was a quick dance. Draw!

not much going on in this fight but that was a huge hit.

Posted by bruiseyoureye on October 08, 2009 at 11:14 PM

wow...what a hit....as for the fight....a draw...no fight.

Posted by piney on October 09, 2009 at 12:18 PM

no punches....draw

Posted by keepermike1949 on March 08, 2013 at 12:43 PM

WOW what a hit! Patty is the inspiration behind my play style in hockey. Glad he's better at fighting now! Awesome hit but afterwords was nothing more than an aggressive hug. Each guy got one decent shot in that's about it. WHAT A HIT

great hit by kaleta!draw

Posted by mmjaka on October 11, 2009 at 07:08 PM

Not much of a fight. Good of Hanzal to drop them and go after Kaleta. Not sure about the hit....draw.

Posted by mrpimp4 on October 09, 2009 at 10:59 PM

great hit. kaleta needs to stick to just hitting people. So far he hasn't impressed with his fighting skills.

Posted by Juha82 on October 09, 2009 at 04:17 AM

DRAW hit was big one fight wasnt much one sharp punch by Kaleta to the end i see slight edge Kaleta but i think its DRaw.

Posted by moneybags on October 09, 2009 at 07:55 AM

Posted by Peters_4_Prez on October 09, 2009 at 06:38 PM

Fantastic hit by Kaleta! Crap fight, but it doesn't seem like Kaleta is going to be turtling this year.

Posted by tattooedkingpin on October 09, 2009 at 10:14 AM

Great hit, but a Draw

Posted by 91673 on October 09, 2009 at 09:00 AM

What a hit! Nothing fight, but man, that hit was crazy. Draw.

Posted by DalStars29 on October 14, 2010 at 02:00 PM

Fight was a draw, hug fest with a punch each (from what you see on the video). That was a dirty hit though. He left his feet. Credit to Hanzal for standing up for team mate.

Posted by jmanlively on October 09, 2009 at 10:47 AM

not really a suicide pass, it looks like he took a look up ice right as he was recieving the pass, idk how he didnt see kaleta coming, just perfect timing by kaleta, very close the leaving his feet, too close to tell, it was contact with shoulder for sure though, follows through with arm kinda makes it look like an elbow. keep your head pruca, everyone has a family.

Posted by youreapylon on October 09, 2009 at 10:08 AM

Great hit from one of the biggest [email protected]#Y's in the league! Fight was a draw, no winner, just two losers!

Posted by Calzone7 on October 09, 2009 at 12:10 AM

pretty sure kaleta could destroy anyone. and the hit, let see the force of the hit made him leave his feet. not dirrty at all. and for the players who have families? why are you playing the game then. hockey is about the physical play. if your gunna cry about getting hit then why are you playing. and mrunohoo you need to calm down seriously. your probably not a trained ref or an nhl player. and kaleta would kill you

Posted by wallysy1 on October 12, 2009 at 01:01 AM

look at the still shot to your right? they are 2 feet apart and both kaletas feet on the ice. proof. when you knock into someone at that speed your feet leave. watch both players feet. dont be dumb. its as clean a hit as you get open ice. fight? kaleta we see land a left. hanzel wrestled him to the ice. that cant be a win for hanzel. the puck not on his stick?? are the announcers paid? i can do that job. hey dudes--the puck is right there.

Posted by knuckleballs on October 08, 2009 at 11:19 PM

Kaleta is one of a kind..............Clean hits, ALWAYS.............The NHL may have to ban checking with this guy on the loose. KEEP YOUR HEAD UP EH!?! Ignore all the crybabies out there, your clean hits are an absolute art. : )

Posted by Sweeney2112 on October 09, 2009 at 07:47 PM

Clearly left his feet and threw the elbow...typical saber wuss!

Posted by SCOTTSO on October 09, 2009 at 08:55 AM

i have never seen anyone take more big hits then prucha,ive commented on it before and it continues to be true today.he needs a personal bodyguard and i dont think hanzal is it!

Posted by OK NOW DONT CRY on October 11, 2009 at 06:29 PM

i love kaletas physical play and i think he won because he got a punch in

Posted by bostonrs555 on October 08, 2009 at 11:38 PM

This is why buffalo sucks, they still cry about Neil's hit on Drury which was clean and then cheer Krum-leta, who takes runs at players who have families.... A life of getting jumped is what you've chosen Muttface. W Hanz Can't wait till someone Steve Moore's him!!!!!!

Posted by Rabid Wombat on October 10, 2009 at 08:11 AM

typical cheap shot by the pu$$y kaleta. it's obvious his feet were off the ice. hopefuly someone ends his career soon

Posted by slapshot12 on October 10, 2009 at 05:02 PM

Wicked check!!!! Better than the fight

Posted by Bahjay on October 09, 2009 at 12:56 AM

I give the hit a 10 and the fight a 1.

Posted by chad420 on October 09, 2009 at 11:26 PM

who dat?......who dere?.......a 10 for the hit...a1 for the fight..draw

Posted by majew17 on October 08, 2009 at 11:49 PM

yea,show the guy laying there while the fight is happening. Unreal

Posted by Oil Can Henry on October 10, 2009 at 11:36 PM

Nice hit, - need to see more of this. No fight - Hanzal just took his man down.

Posted by stiri on October 12, 2009 at 06:14 PM

good borderline hit crap fight, draw

Posted by BritishRedWing on October 09, 2009 at 09:02 PM

Joke of a fight. Draw, at best. This is hockey right? That hit looked perfectly legal, the Coyote had his head up, not sure what the fuss is all about.

Posted by azjim on October 09, 2009 at 05:30 AM

If you are going to drop the gloves, fight. Both guys did a lot more hugging than mugging. Kaleta did leave his feet to hit Prucha. He's in the air when he made contact.

Posted by Bloodbank on January 26, 2014 at 09:00 AM

Clean hit. Crap fight.

Posted by bmark314 on October 31, 2009 at 01:24 PM

Hanzal the winner??? Of what? Certainly not that fight. Kaleta CRUSHING hit. Hanzal isn't much of an enforcer.

Posted by byvelds68 on October 08, 2009 at 11:51 PM

kaleta is a piece of shit....left his feet and a head shot and then couldnt even man up and get his ass kicked...he was a punk in junior and i see nothing ever changes

Posted by hockeyfan87 on October 11, 2009 at 09:48 AM

Kaleta is a wimp. All he does is try to run people. He did the same to Habs D-Man Paul Mara a few seasons back. Fight was a draw though

Posted by TrueBlue26 on October 10, 2009 at 11:38 AM

dirty hit, he led with his forearm and left his feet, good for hanzal steppin in

Posted by mrunohoo on October 08, 2009 at 11:20 PM

This game was a muther ****ing joke. i've never seen such horrible ****ing officiatin. he left his ****ing feet and no penalty. there were COUNTLESS times the refs looked the other way when the sabres committed penalties, but every time there should have been matching minors, they called the coyotes for two or even three penalties. steve montador threw his gloves off coming after scottie upshall and they gave a double minor to upshall. ****ing ridiculous. these refs should lose their jobs. what a crock of ****. and patrick kaleta is a ****ing punk. hey patrick, when you come to pheonix or southern california you better wathc yourself. you're a bitch. Hey patrick jan 18th, jan 19th, jan 21st. get ready buddy.
