I would be sad to see him go to the Sharks, but good for him if he gets on their team.

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

Makes a lot of sense for the Sharks given their current D-Corps

Exactly. Lilja should be able to make that team.

Good luck to him.

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.

Thanks Offsides

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

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.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Surprised this didn't happen sooner. Hate to say it, but he is a good fit over there. Best of luck 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.
