Please stop your act.
NOBODY here has remotey insinuated that Daniel Paille is an all-star. He is NOT an all-star.
But for all your bluster about what other people are saying about him...your actually worse.
Paille has instantly become the best PK forward on the team. The PK began improving almost instantly when Paille joined the team.
And he is nowhere near the horrible player you make him out to be.
Here is the REALITY of Daniel Paiile:
- Great PK player. Great instinct and dogged in those situations
- Very solid defensive forward. Dogged forechecker. Makes you earn your space
- Average offensive ability. Crashes the net consistently and works the boards well. Not a great shooter. HAs never been projected to be a 40 goal guy, but certainly has potential to be a 20 goal 3rd liner.
- Solid checker. Wont put you through a wall, but finishes his checks.
He is what he is...a solid 3rd liner, who can play up on a 2nd line for stretches.
He has played VERY well with Sobotka and Wheeler.
Honestly, how you missed his excellent play with those 2 is beyond me.
Me thinks you simply don't like him and you have made him a nice scapegoat.
