Daniel Paille will join Ilves of Finland’s SM-liiga, according to the team’s website.

Paille signed a three-year, $3.9 million contract extension with the Boston Bruins over the summer. Before the lockout, he was scheduled to earn $1,300,000 this season in the first year of that deal.

At this point in his career, Paille has established himself as a bottom-six forward in the NHL. He had nine goals and 15 points in 69 games with the Bruins last season while averaging 11:29 minutes per contest.

Ilves has also been the lockout home of Philadelphia Flyers forward Maxime Talbot.

Talbot has four points and 24 penalty minutes in seven games with Ilves.

    Ok, ok, I went on and on about Dec 3 a while back. Here it is and we still have a lockout and there are players still signing with euro teams. I admit I was wrong. I got all excited when an acquaintace who works at our local NHL rink told us they were hiring for a Dec 3,resumption of play. I’d be as embarrased as Blomfeld right now if I gave a s— about what the thumb-downers think so I wont pull a disappearing act like he did.
