Sabres send Paille to Bruins for draft pick

The Buffalo Sabres traded forward Daniel Paille to the Boston Bruins on Tuesday in exchange for Boston's third-round selection in the 2010 Entry Draft and a conditional fourth-round selection in 2010.

Paille, 25, has one assist in two games with the Sabres this season. He was Buffalo's first-round pick in the 2002 Entry Draft and has 35 goals and 77 points in 182 NHL games, all with the Sabres. His best season was 2007-08, when he scored 19 goals and added 16 assists for 35 points in 77 games. He followed that by going 12-16-28 in 73 games last season.

If Paille scores 16 or more goals during the 2009-10 regular season, Boston will transfer its own fourth-round selection in the 2010 draft or Carolina's fourth-rounder, acquired in a previous deal. Boston will have to determine which selection it is transferring prior to the beginning of the second round.
Quote of the Day

I feel that responsibility, I've felt it for the last two years. We core guys get a lot of minutes, we get a lot of opportunity out there. Our teammates, the organization and fans look to us to be the guys to put the puck in the net and to create momentum out there.
