I know Lilja was placed on long term IR to start the season, but I wanted to know if anyone has heard any updates on him since? I've read a few articles of him being optomistic, but it seems the doctors are shooting down his return at every chance he gets. I was hoping to see him back as soon as possible, however I'm beginning to wonder if maybe he'll be out for the entire season... Or could this be an end to his career, Eric Lindros II?

Personally, if he has been out this long with recurring headaches, I dont see him coming back. I will certainly miss him though and will be ecstatic if he can come back.

I hope this doesn't turn into another Troy Crowder or Tony Twist like situation. I hate it when tough guys have their careers cut short by injury.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Come on, it was a freak accident. You don't expect anyone to be injured when you hit them in the head.

That is true, but Weber is still the one that did this to Lilja and it's hard not to hate him for what he did. I'm sure he felt/feels bad about what happened and did not intend to hurt him but that doesn't change anything if Lilja can't come back to play.

I'm not bashing Lilja and I desperately want him back, but he was stupid to get into that fight in the first place. There was nothing to prove in that game. It was a stupid move on so many levels. And by that I mean, I absolutely don't hold anything against Weber. There was nothing dirty about it and again, I'm more pissed at Lilja for getting into the fight in the first place.

I think we'll see him back though...

laugh.gif that one rates highly on the unintentional comedy scale. Or maybe it's just late. I knew what you meant though.

My personal gut feeling is that Lilja's done, which is a damn shame.

Well - not trying to defend Weber here, but Lilja got his elbow in the back of Weber's head up along the boards, and then Lilja grabbed Weber just under the chin, and yanked him down...That kinda stuff is gonna get a reaction from the opposition, and Lilja answered the bell; just a heat of the moment kinda scrap.

I don't see any blame on either party; Lilja getting rough with a guy who'll defend himself; s*** happens.

Problem is that even if we do get him back, he'll likely fall or get bumped somehow and it'll reaggravate his injury so it's even worse. For how long it has gone on, it's probably that kind of injury.

Wings will never dump a player who got hurt playing for them, number one. Not that kind of club, thankfully.

As for Quincey, doesn't sound to me as if he's interested in the Wings anymore.

Give me a ring, but don't call me...

I talked to Andreas at camp and I asked him what the prognosis was. He answered, "we'll see".

Remember it took Patrice Bergeron in Boston about a year to get back from his concussion, so I'm holding out hope that he might have that same time frame. I'm patient and I'll wait, but I also miss him big time.

Yeah, it usually takes about a year to recover from. If he's not back by late Feb./early March, then I'd be concerned.

Yeh.... I guess that is why we have May. So another Wing isn't put out of commission. So no matter how bad May plays he is still needed because you certainly don't want Ericsson fighting.

I wonder if a May vs Weber fight is on the fight card schedule??????????

LOL... that sounds like a real professional fight..... May vs Weber.

We don't need Lilja for a tough guy, we need him for our defense and PK. He is an incredibly underrated and under-appreciated player.

Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!
