Paille Returns to Boston on New Two-Year Deal

Both Bob McKenzie and Darren Dreger from TSN in Canada are reporting that the Bruins have agreed on a two-year deal with restricted free agent Daniel Paille. The deal is reported to be worth $2.15 million in total, with Paille earning $1 million in 2010-11, then $1.15 million in 2011-12. The annual cap hit will be $1.075 million.

The 26-year-old winger came to Boston via a trade with division rival Buffalo early on last season. Paille, who spent time being juggled on almost every forward line during different parts of the season, appeared in 74 games for the B’s, putting up 10 goals and 9 assists.

With very little cap space remaining, the Bruins still have restricted free agents Blake Wheeler, Mark Stuart, Adam McQuaid, and the newly acquired Gregory Campbell to re-sign. Because of Boston’s lack of spending flexibility, don’t expect any splashes from them in the free agent pool. Today begins the league’s free agent frenzy, where teams around the NHL are able to begin negotiating deals with free agents.
