    I gotta agree with both Paille needs to bury those he's had way too many breakaways this year and it was also momentum changer!

    You should be able to turn down the PS for a 2min PP.  Everyone knew Paille wasn't making that (i was still cheering).

    Teams should be able to designate a shooter on the team for a penalty shot.. everyone in the house knew Paille was not going to score..

    Re: Paille Misses Penalty Shot

    you're honestly going to complain that someone didn't score on a penalty shot? Do you realize that the goalies dominate in penalty shots?

    Are you really that petty that you are going to start a thread because someone didn't do something that is statistically very difficult to do?

    I think you just like to whine

    so... aren't you both saying the same thing?  We can all agree that on penalty shots and.or shootouts that the goalies tend to either make the save or the shooter misses the net so statistically.. you're probably not going to score.. Seems to me that you guys are in agreement.. am I wrong?

    Paille played an excellent game, stopping Dubinsky's chance to tie the game with minutes left.  If Paille were not there, it was a sure goal.  

    Paille has many good skills, and it's puzzling why he just doesn't score much.  On the penalty shot, it looked like he shot right into the goalie's upper arm.  There was more empty net in the upper corner, but he didn't hit it.

    Paille works hard, skates his tail off and is an excellent PKer. He has little touch around the net, and Lundqvist is a world-class goalie (Paille didn't shoot right into his upper arm; Lundqvist made the save). It's not shocking that he didn't score. What IS shocking is that someone would be nit-picky enough to actually post and complain about it. The Fellowship of the Miserable lives on.

    A penalty shot is not designed to "penalize" a team.  It is awarded to the player who was interfered with on his way to goal.  It is basically a "do over".  Thus, putting the player who was on the breakaway one on one with the goalie. 

    If you got to let your best player shoot, then it is not exactly recreating the situation without the interference.  Face it; if he was not interfered with, chances are the results would have been the same.

    Ahh  that's who the player was to stop Dubinsky .  I was pointing out to Duinne a few mistakes (?) Wideman made and Paille saved Wideman's miss handling of Dubinsky behind the net when he cut across and Rask was down and out.
    I just wish Paille used his speed on the PS since he doesn't have the best hands with his speed to can make a goalie back-down faster and he would have more openings.
    He's taken over what Axelsson did for the Bruins.

    Uhh, I hope you're not counting me among your designated Fellowship.  I am very positive about Paille and agree with BsLegion that he's a replacement for Axellson (adding his magnificent speed).  His skills in forechecking and PK are top drawer.  

    I don't agree that Lundqvist had to move much to make the save, but we all see the game a bit differently.  Is it nit-picky or complaintive to say so?  The important point here is that Paille would be a top notch player with some more finesse in the scoring department.  Perhaps he can still learn that component of the game.

    No, not counting you at all, CCM. I just have to stand in wonder at people who go searching for things to complain about after a solid, hard-fought victory. It's amazing.

    I don't think Paille will ever be a big scorer. He is what he is - a hard-working defensive guy with enough speed to open up the defense for his teammates.  He's a valuable guy to have on your team; it's no coincidence that the Bruins' PK became the best in the NHL after he arrived. He plays his role well, and as long as he continues to do so, I'm certainly not going to complain that he's not scoring much.

    He had 27 and 37 goals in two years as a junior, and 19 in 2007-08 with Buffalo. The potential is there.  Can 25 year old players still learn and develop?

    That's not a ton of goals for a junior, and hitting 19 in the NHL once, two years ago, means little.

    Sure, you can learn and develop. But can you suddenly gain a goal-scorer's touch? I don't think so. Those players are born, not made, IMHO. You can certainly refine your goal-scoring -- God knows the best players have put in countless hours of practice -- but it's a talent like any other. You've either got it or you don't.

    His penalty shot attempt was so weak. Looked like he was aiming for Lundqvist's pad. He was dead on. Really bad penalty shot for a guy playing in the show.

    But should this suprise any one? After nearly any game you could start a thread readin "Paille blows break away".. His first 20 games as a bruins I would wager he had 15 clear break aways with out burying 1...

    Before he shot I said don't go gloveside on him, he has a great glove...

    The question is, can an old (age 25!!!) player learn new tricks.  Beats me.  I see Paille doing great stick work, anticipation, puck lugging, passing, with super speed..... so why the heck can't he score?  Is it just a mental block?  Can he unlearn some pattern and learn a new one?

    I dunno and would like to hear from additional astute posters, some of whom surely have way more hockey knowledge than I.  The apex of my hockey career was making the college freshman team (RPI) and after that I've been just an observer, and I don't watch many games besides the Bs.  Are there examples of players who have INCREASED their goal production in the latter years of their tenure?  For sure, some have DECLINED, but that's probably due to the loss of speed and reflex.

    Can Paille still become a whiz kid ace goal getter?

    Hope so!!!
