'Paille's effort came after a chat with Ruff. Paille had been called up Jan. 13 from Rochester and suited up for the Sabres that night, but Ruff wasn't impressed with Paille's effort and let him know it. "I know I didn't have a good game," said Paille, Buffalo's first round pick (20th overall) in the 2002 NHL entry draft. "We had a little talk and he made me realize I had to step it up a little bit if I want to continue playing here. I want to be here and I'm going to do my best not to do that again."'
