MIDDLETON — Bruins forward Daniel Paille [1], who is the team’s player representative for the NHL [2] Players’ Association, said Monday that while the league and NHLPA haven’t come to terms on a new collective bargaining agreement, he’s confident the season will start on time.

The league made its initial proposal last month, but the NHLPA has yet to make a counteroffer. The current CBA is set to expire on Sept. 15, and Paille said he won’t worry about losing games until it expires.

“After Sept. 15, we’ll see what happens,” Paille said. “Until then, I don’t think there’s any reason to panic. I think for us, it’s definitely a line of communication. I think it’s a positive for us to keep that going.”
