I would prefer him to stay a Wing but that's already been decided. So hopefully he'll make the team and be able to play another year or two. Good luck to him but he will be missed.

They don't have a true enforcer on their team, so it's not a bad idea for them.

Plus, the chicks on the West coast will love him.

Sucks that he won't be playing in Detroit next year, though.

I wonder if McLellan received a pity call from Holland recently about Lils.

Or maybe McLellan just knows Lilja and knows he is a good bottom pairing defenseman and pushed for it.

I don't think you are going to see him doing any enforcing. One nasty hit, and his career could be over.

I remember the days when Lilja was the whipping boy on this site... nice to see him get some love. I liked him on the PK and as a defensive zone guy, but his best days were when he was beating ass and became known as the Pain Train lol.

Son of a...

Well, I may have to partially root for the Sharks this year.

Not to mention buy their jersey if the sexy beast makes the team.

He is the Pain Train. Hopefully he will remember us when we play against him, and not hurt us too badly.

Best of luck to him and his family.

Nothing at all surprising here. If Lilja can't make that team, given the current state of its d-corps, then he'll either have to crawl back to Detroit or head to Europe. This is a perfect scenario for him. Time for the current guys here, especially the younger ones, to step up. Lebda and Lilja are gone ... only the best remain
