Been waiting for this. Not a heavyweight or even a regular fighter but when he throws them, he can throw them.

Gonna catch flak but Kaleta is pretty underrated, when he decides to fire em off he seems to have a jackhammer pumping the other guy in the face.

Overrated: Chara by far

best: gotta be MCgratton

Am I the only one that thinks Kaleta lost but didnt actually lose as terribly as some like to make it seem?

Especially considering the size/ experience difference

Underrated would be Ryan White or Brad Staubitz. Overrated would be Shawn Thornton.

Staubitz surprised me, when we picked him up I was led to believe the only good fight he had was against Tootoo. He had some really good wide open fights in his short time with the Habs.

Underrated: Mike Brown - the guy isn't very tall but he's solid and he just throws the whole time.
Example:


Overrated: Shawn Thornton

Best: Brian McGrattan
Although I'm a Leafs fan, I will admit, he showed some great stuff here. I especially like the celebration at the end.

That's a ******** edit, obviously from the Montreal media. Kaleta did get dropped at the end, but he dominated the beginning of that fight.

And you're accusing the "Montreal media" of spinning things.

He got tooled. Let's just live with that fact.

Kaleta is an entertaining fighter, and that was a very entertaining fight. Unfortunately, there's not a recording of it anywhere aside from this clipped version. It lasted about a minute. I also always wanted to see Kaleta KO Powe too, but the Philly media never released that either.

He's only had 2 fights, and he's not even a fighter, but Clarke MacArthur is a beast if you piss him off. He wrecked both guys (Spacek and Larose I think). He picked Larose up and threw him around twice.

If you watch the fight in slow-motion you could see that Milan Lucic didn't land the majority of his punches he threw, but it was indeed a clear win for him but it wasn't a decisive victory. People should give some credit to Patrick Kaleta fighting a decent heavyweight.

Pierre-Luc Leblond is another heavyweight who is underrated, he had some really good fights when he was on the devils. His fight against Cam Janssen was one of the best fights i've ever seen besides Jon Mirasty vs. Jeremy Yablonski.

Wasn't decisive?! What?!

Mcquaid is underrated. Thornton is overrated although I do like when he is legit fighting out of anger, then he turns scary. McGrattan is the best in my mind now. Scott is massively overrated.
