If only more players would "Mara" Kaleta.



There's one thing being chippy and a pest, but this is the same guy that asked Paul Mara, "How's your face?"

I hope more teams have a longer memory of Kaleta and his antics. Leaving your feet and injuring players should be absolutely unacceptable, if not deemed by the NHL, but at least remembered by each team.

Not quite "clean"

Kaleta is a dirty bestid and needs to be tuned up by someone. That shot on Prucha was cheap and should have been penalized.

The upwards, follow through motion was dirty. Thats really what the league needs to curb. Bodycheck a guy, but that linebacker thrust into the head area is ********.

Just look at how different the younger players and the rookies on this team are now being treated. When was the last time we saw a coach with the courage to start rookies on the PP and put the vets who weren't getting the job done, on the bench.

Look at how Staal is being encouraged.

Look at how Anisimov gets a regular shift.

Amazing how different someone who is both competent and confident can do for young developing players. Not once, has Torts spoken to the media about a player and limiting his expectations of him. Even as he continued to score, Renney had stated that he didn't expect, "know" if Petr would continue to do so, although it was a pleasant surprise.

It amazes me no one during that broadcast mentioned the fact Kaleta led and drove his elbow up, into Prucha's face.

So not only did that coward leap into a hit (on a player much smaller than him), he also led his elbow.

And don't tell me it was a forearm or shoulder. You don't flap your chicken wing, when your simply leading with the upper shoulder.

The league should suspend him for 10-15 games. maybe 20. That will get the message across to these weasels.

Kaleta is going to his due. Just watch. Someone is going to clean his clock or go headhunting on him. And it will be ugly.

And painful.

Agreed. He's establishing himself as a dirty, dirty player. Someone is going to cheap-shot him sooner or later and really hurt him.

I'm honestly SHOCKED Kaleta didn't keep his gloves on in either "fight."

At 27 going on 28 years old, Prucha probably is what he is at this point.

In the right situation, he'll score 20, maybe 25 goals.

Unfortunately it will be because he's on a team that doesn't have anyone better to do it.

As such, he'll probably bounce around a little and be a temp player on teams that are rebuilding or lacking depth. Once those teams get better, he'll move to a new destination and the process will repeat.

Prucha is similar to a guy like Mike York in the sense that Ranger fans, specifically those on the internet, fell in love with him because of his obvious efforts and constant energy. Sadly, those tend to be the guys that we overrate the most.
