I think the problem with Paille is that he's the most frustrating good player on the Bruins.

At what he does he's impressive and he's an excellent 4th liner with his speed and defensive ability -- the man can cause a lot of havoc on the ice, and can make scoring chances on his own, usually manages it in a given game, and practically never finds a way to tuck it behind the goaltender.

In every other facet of the game he's decent to excellent. This is a guy who if he could bury the shot would probably be a 30 goal player. He's great at getting offensive chances, he's great at the neutral and defensive zones, and he's solid at the possession game in the offensive zone, but he just *can't* put it away. Just doesn't have the shiftiness to beat goaltenders. So he's just one of the most frustrating great 4th liners in the game instead.

When I saw this last night, all I could picture was the scene from Better Off Dead, where Lane Meyer(John Cusack) says "Sorry your mom's face blew up Ricky."
Broken nose is good news, really... it could have been much worse.

First thing I actually thought of was the conference finals last year with Stamkos.

Aw man, Broken nose

Get well soon Paille... we will miss you in the time being. You are a much bigger part of our team than you get credit for. Hope you heal quick and painlessly.

Get well Danny!

How there is a single player in NHL that doesn't wear a visor is mind blowing. That shot elevated in a nano second. Zero chance of getting out of way -- pure crap shoot if that sort of shot hits teeth, nose, cheekbone, temple, or eye.

Stamkos got hurt through the visor in the ECF last year.

Only a full cage puts you in no risk at all.

I'd be willing to bet that Paille's visor deflected some of impact as well.

I can see NHL going to mandatory visors one day for the eye factor alone. Full cages never though -- nor should they IMO.

Always loved Paille. Get well soon, kid. That has to hurt, wouldn't want to trade places with him.

you said it yourself. HE'S A 4th LINER.

Theres no frustration here on danny paille. Yea, sure id like him to bury every chance he gets. But if im relying on dan paille's offense (or any other 4th liner) then I got bigger problems than the 4th line.
He gets 1m a year because he ISNT a 30g scorer. If he was, he wouldn't be here and def not for that price tag.

Thank God it is only his nose- from the way it looked I was afraid the puck had hit him in one of his eyes.


Get well soon Danny- I for one have always appreciated you

But where the frustration comes from, and I know you know this, is that if he could just bury the chances he creates for himself, he'd be a FIRST liner.

Oh wait. Right. You can't fight with a cage on.

There was a family with two little girls sitting in front of me last night. I think the girls played hockey, because at one point Horton missed receving a pass, and the dad turned to the older one and said "see? that's why you need to keep your stick down".

When Paille's face exploded, the older girl girl (probably about 10) turned around and said to me that he would have been fine if he was wearing a cage, and all the players should have to. The dad looked at his daughter, shook his head, and asked whose kid are you?

It was hilarious.

Who said anything about fighting?

Visor goes a long way to protecting the eyes and is minimally intrusive on vision -- you could argue that whatever tradeoff in peripheral vision is made up for in protection of eyes -- particularly given that damage to an eye is often irreversible.

Cage is much more obtrusive on vision and would affect play. Plus the only real benefit of a cage over a visor is that it would protect teeth/jaw. If a player wants to risk teeth/jaw injury let them.

Lucic got nicked on the neck by a skate last night -- could have been unbelievably scary. Should we require that players wear mandatory neck shields?

Game has risks -- can't eliminate them all.

What about the nose? Paille was wearing a visor.

Whats wrong with the cage? They use it in college hockey and in football. If it keeps our players in the lineup instead of sucking on a straw I'm all for it.

BTW, since this an Injury Report thread, what's the story with Peverley? Couldn't find anything in the GTR.

I agree, it would protect the nose as well.

Look, I'm not saying I wouldn't opt against the cage myself. However, given that it has clear implications on vision it should be a player's choice.

I think the league should ultimately make the visor mandatory. Vision impact is minimal and it would go a long way to eliminating eye injuries (not all the way, I know).

Cage, on the other hand, would mainly eliminate teeth and nose -- and IMO those should be a player's choice on how to protect and what tradeoffs (if any) they are willing to make to do so.

That could have been much worse than broken nose, so I'm relieved.

Hope he's feeling well and back in the game soon.

Hopefully he comes back with a cage on and hits everything in sight just like Kelly last year.
