07:34 AM ET 09.17 | Not far removed from a season during which his team's resolve was questioned, Patrick Kaleta had an early answer this preseason. [Kaleta] didn't even see Jamie McBain get dropped with a clean, hard check Sunday night. He just knew McBain was a new teammate and he wanted the Sabres defenseman to know that Buffalo players stick up for each other. ... Kaleta and Cody McCormick went after Canadiens who leveled big hits during the Sabres' 5-4 victory in the preseason opener. Kaleta says he might not have challenged normally mild-mannered Alex Galchenyuk during the regular season, but exhibition games are a time to send messages. "We want to establish that we are a team and no one is going to take liberties on old guys, young guys," Kaleta said. "You're going to have to deal with all five guys on the ice."

Unless of course you run over Ryan Miller, then it's cool

When exactly did the players decide that clean hard hits need a scrum in response ? Take off the skirts boys , avenge the dirty stuff , otherwise get the heck up and get back in the play.

If the Teens roll eyes and shake heads .....your work is done , mission accomplished. Threaten to pick them up at school wearing cycling shorts , and rubber boots.The terror in their eyes is satisfying somehow.

Thanks. Shanny actually turned down the Calgary Flames position of President of Hockey Operations , which gave us Blusterbag. So i am angry with Mr. Shanny at present.
