OK guys, I'm a newbie here and decided to take a shot at a trade idea. I see that the Ducks are carrying 9 defensemen and, according to Spector, Andreas Lilja may be the odd man out there. Considering the trouble that the Wings have had keeping defensemen healthy the last few years what would you think of Kenny making a trade to get him? I'm thinking a prospect, draft choice or both. We could either carry 8 D men or send Mursak or Kindl back down when Modano gets back. (assuming Mursak or Kindl can go down without clearing waivers; I don't know)
Lilja is cheaper than Kindl or Mursak and would free up a little cap space. And he's a UFA next year so if he doesn't work out he's gone and if he does he can probably be resigned for a decent price. I'd like to think he learned his lesson turning down the last offer from the Wings.
So go ahead and let me have it. Be gentle
