Bruins trade picks to Buffalo for Daniel Paille

The Bruins have traded a third round pick in 2010 and a conditional fourth round pick in 2010 to the Buffalo Sabres for left wing Daniel Paille. The 25 year old,  6'0" 197 lb winger has appeared in 2 games this season for the Sabres, recording an assist. Paille finished last season with 12 goals and 15 assists for the Sabres and an even +/-.

Paille seems to be a decent overall player, but doesn't really excel in any one facet of the game. He isn't exactly a pure goal scorer, but he can score some goals here and there. He recorded a career-best 19 goals in '07-'08. Paille was a former first round draft pick of the Buffalo Sabres in 2002 (20th overall), so there certainly is some potential there.

Paille is a 3rd line/depth guy, who was brought in to replace Chuck Kobasew. At a cap hit of $1.125 million compared to Kobasew's $2.333 million and very little going the other way in this deal, I think this is a solid move.
