... and he can go airborne, just like Daniel Paille did when hit by Brooks Orpik today.

“He’s going to be out for the time being,” Julien said. “They think it’s a mild concussion, but again, you never know. We’ll take it day by day. He’s feeling a little better today, which is always good news to hear.”
Paille suffered the head injury on a hit from Krystofer Barch in the first period of the loss to the Panthers. Barch was penalized for charging on the play, but Julien said after the game he didn’t think Barch’s hit was dirty.
“It was a clean hit,” Julien said Thursday. “I think it was just how he ended up going down, I guess, or whether it looked like there was almost helmet-to-helmet collision there in slow-motion.”

BOSTON - The NHL handed Daniel Paille a four game suspension for his hit on Raymond Sawada during the Bruins 6-3 win over the Dallas Stars on Thursday.
TORONTO (February 4, 2011) – Boston Bruins’ forward Daniel Paille has been suspended for four games and will forfeit $23,118.28 as a result of delivering an illegal check to the head of Dallas Stars’ forward Raymond Sawada in NHL game #770, last night, the National Hockey League announced today.
“Paille delivered a lateral hit where the principal point of contact was his opponent’s head,” said Senior Vice President of Hockey Operations Mike Murphy. “Additionally, the injury suffered by the Dallas player was a factor in this decision.”
The incident occurred at 8:39 of the second period and Paille was assessed a major penalty and game misconduct under Rule 48 for Illegal Check to the Head.
Paille’s fine is based on his average annual salary and is calculated under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement. The money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.
Paille will miss the Bruins next four games—Feb. 5 vs. San Jose, Feb. 9 vs. Montreal, Feb. 11 vs. Detroit and Feb. 13 at Detroit. He is eligible to return Feb. 15 vs. Toronto.
Daniel Paille received ten and a match penalty for this hit on Raymond Sawada tonight.
from Bucky Gleason of the Buffalo News,
Ruff has been harping since the first day of training camp about playing better away from the puck. Detroit has excelled in that area for years, Datsyuk in particular. He had 97 points last season and was among the Red Wings’ most dangerous offensive weapons, but he also won the Selke Trophy as the NHL’s top defensive forward.
Henrik Zetterberg finished last season with 43 goals and 92 points and was a runner-up for the Selke. He won the Conn Smythe Trophy as the most valuable player in the playoffs after the Red Wings won the Stanley Cup. They helped set Detroit apart in a tight league.
Ruff isn’t asking for Datsyuk and Zetterberg’s talent, but he wants his players matching their effort. Vanek has scored two short-handed goals, both the results of Paille’s labor.
from the Buffalo Sabres,
Buffalo Sabres General Manager Darcy Regier announced today that forward Daniel Paille has agreed to terms on a multi-year deal. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“Danny is a talented young player that can make a difference at both ends of the ice,” Regier said. “Danny has been a key component to our penalty killing unit and we look forward to helping him continue to develop with our club for years to come.”
