Danny Paille
 
Am I the only one who thinks hes been great these first few games? Hes been flying out there. Hes been hitting hard, driving to the net and even picked up a greasy goal against the rags in game one.

You aren't the only one. Can't see how someone could dog him for his play. Solid bottom six player and great for depth. My good friend is from Buffalo and he's also a secondary B's fan. He was so disappointed when he saw Paille was gone but then was very much consoled with the fact that he came to Boston.

This is the way Paille always plays. He hits. He hustles. He plays good defense. Solid influence and contributor to the team.

when it comes to 4th line players in the entire league, Paille is elite, one of the best :handclap:

Danny Paille professional penalty killer. I'm a fan.

Pay Carl 01-29-2013 12:55 AM

Paille is a total beast. Had some trouble settling the puck today but as a few posters said I am pretty sure it had more to do with the ice than anything else

Kiss My Rask 01-29-2013 05:51 AM

He's someone who in football terms, possessions a nonstop motor. Great complimentary player who fits perfectly here.

ToddRundgren 01-29-2013 06:41 AM

He has been great. We are extremely lucky to have him. Super fast and willing to go anywhere on the ice... and get there first.

This. This isn't anything new. I just wish he'd use palmolive for those damn hands.

It's just Danny being Danny.

Braunbaer 01-29-2013 07:19 AM

On the Rangers, he'd play alongside Stepan and Callahan.

Awesome to have him. Definitely one of the best 4th liners in the league.

doubleminor138 01-29-2013 07:31 AM

I think I would like to see him get spot time on the 3rd line. I realize he has some great chemistry and makes a huge difference with that 4th line, but he's under-utilized.

Krupp 01-29-2013 07:46 AM

I've been thinking about it lately, and I do think it'd be interesting to see Danny get another chance on the third line like he did last year. It might give the line a jump, or it may not. Either way, I don't think it'd hurt Pevs or Kelly any whatsoever. I just can't see Bourque keeping his place on this team. Unless he starts creating some great chances in the next handful of games, something's gotta be done.

PatriceBergeronFan 01-29-2013 08:04 AM

He was terrible offensively last night, constantly fumbling or missing the puck. But it isn't like many players were good last night, so....

NastyNate17 01-29-2013 08:08 AM

Paille is a stud no doubt about that

Artemis 01-29-2013 08:22 AM

In the ECF vs. Tampa, Paille was on a PK in which he killed about 45 seconds all by himself, at one point stripping the puck from St. Louis. That's the way I'll always think of him.

He was a first-round draft pick who could have been a disappointment but instead reinvented himself in a different role. Chiarelli made a wise move picking him up. It's not always the "big" deals that are critical.

Turk 16 01-29-2013 08:28 AM

I'd also like to see him get a shot on the 3rd line.

chsb 01-29-2013 08:31 AM

Hence his tireless effort would greatly benefit the 3rd line.
He does not have great hands but he could play along 2 veterans the way Pouliot did last season, bring up similar numbers or close and be more responsible defensively.

Adding a McDermid or Caron to Campbell and Thornton would not deplete that greatly the Bruins' 4th line and would improve substantially the 3rd line.

I give another 2-3 games top to Bourque with the Bruins.
I personally preferred Caron in that same spot last season when it occurred.....

Bourque failed on different teams including the Caps that I was following a bit....he never showed anything significant at the NHL level deserving a stay.

Paille on the other hand deserves a promotion and he is still young and showing potential still for improvement.
He is only 1 year older than Bergeron....

BMC 01-29-2013 08:33 AM

I have liked Daniel Paille ever since he joined the Bruins. Heck I even bought a Paille t-shirt at the Pro Shop :laugh:

Love the way he plays the game. Great to see him finally get some props from the board :yo::yo:

smithformeragent 01-29-2013 09:26 AM

I'm a big fan, both of Paille and of the OP's user name.

Maybe it's too much to ask, but do you remember in what game this happened?

Deserves a promotion...Pound for pound, one of the toughest players in the league, and an underrated hitter...

Oh geez no, sorry. I just remember it was vs. Tampa because of St. Louis. Most of the games all sort of run together in my mind.

He (and the rest of the PKers) were outstanding vs. Vancouver. They actually outscored the Vancouver PP, which IMO was a crucial and sometimes overlooked element in the series.

Ladyfan 01-29-2013 11:27 AM

Love Danny Paille.

Works hard every shift.

Excellent PK.

splat10 01-29-2013 11:48 AM

other than the absolute bricks at the end of his arms, he is a very valuable player. If you understand that he's there to grind and play defence he's elite. When the puck comes near him, well it's time to get back on D.
