Bruins sign Paille through 2015, Bourque through 2014


The Bruins have agreed to terms with forwards Daniel Paille and Chris Bourque. Paille will remain in Black and Gold through the 2014-15 season and Bourque - acquired last week in a trade with Washington for Zach Hamill's rights - will be a Bruin through the 2013-14 season. Paille has been a member of the Bruins since being acquired in a trade with Buffalo early in the 2009-10 season. The former first-round draft pick of the Sabres has played in 186 regular season games for Boston, notching 25-22=47 totals with 55 penalty minutes. He's also played in 46 postseason games, earning 4-5=9 totals. He'll make $1.3 million per year. Bourque, son of former Bruin Ray Bourque and native of Boston, has only appeared in 33 NHL games all-time, accumulating 1-3=4 totals, but has been a regular 20-goal scorer at the AHL level in Hershey. Bourque's contract is worth $550,000 at the NHL level and $200,000 at the AHL level.

Rick Nash is Not Coming to Boston


Matt wrote about this four days ago. But nothing's changed. He's not coming. Not for David Krejci, not for Tuukka Rask and definitely not for Milan Lucic. So let's just refrain from entertaining these thoughts anymore, okay? great.
