Daniel Paille re-signed with the Boston Bruins today. A two year, $2.15M deal. People are already getting uppity about this signing. Saying he’s overpaid and the Bs should’ve let him walk. We get it. He can’t score.
We’ve made plenty of digs on Paille about the same thing. Like how he can’t score on a breakaway if his life depended on it. Apparently we were wrong. There’s actual video evidence of Paille scoring on a breakaway.
Practice counts, right? In somewhat seriousness, the guy’s solid on the PK and he’s going to be making less than he did last year. PC could’ve done a lot worse. He’ll be fourth line and PK specialist so we probably won’t see him on too many breakaway attempts. And if he does, he should dish it to Shawn “Wayne” Thornton.
