Damn, I'm gonna miss that man. One of the nicest people I ever met. Good luck and good journeys, Andreas. Some of us will still have a soft spot for you.

I feel bad for Lilja, and I hope he makes the team. I think that he would be a good fit on the Sharks. I like the Sharks, so it would be easy to root for him there.

I hope Lilja gets to camp in time to partake in the diving lessons.

Lol... I'm pretty sure the handbook will be required reading on the flight in. I wouldn't be surprised if Wilson tripped him up coming off the plane in order to assess his skills.

They still don't.

Miss ya, Lils.

Well, I know he hasn't made the team yet, but I'm just saying that the move makes sense for them. No harm in trying him out.

I think it's a good move for both sides. I know he probably doesn't want to uproot his family any more than necessary, so here's to hoping he makes the team and doesn't have to resort to playing overseas.

if he signs a one year deal with sharks there is always the chance he could come back after this season as the 6th - 7th d man if salei and lidstom go, maybe kindl doesn't work out ect.

Lilja did spend the first 2 1/2 years of his career in LA, so it is not that crazy a thought for him to go to San Jose. He is basically a lock to make the team and has a realistic chance at making the top four. None of that could be said about his chances in Detroit, especially not after Salei was signed.

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

Damn right, I will. My closet is rather Eastern Conference heavy with jerseys right now. :lol:

I wasn't much of a fan in the early days, but I think we were all expecting something different than the player we got. I started to warm to him a bit as he started to play well, but it's a shame he got injured. Good luck to him and his family, I hope he makes the team and does well.

As for jerseys, all I have so far is Red Wings jerseys, so I think it's time to update my closet with some jerseys from the other teams that I like. I think a blue Staal Rangers jersey will be next.

Hmmm...we're pregnant with a girl; can a girl be named Lilja? Lilja May Lowell?

My wife is seriously contemplating "Stevie". She adores Yzerman. (But who doesn't)

You could always call her Andrea. Just put the accent on the right syllable.

Of course any girl big enough that it takes more than one person to be pregnant with her is not going to get a lot of guff no matter what you name her.

My hamster is Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan. I haven't told him about us losing Lilja yet.

Lilja is Swedish for Lily so that would work.

As a matter of fact it sounds like a beautiful girl's name in Swedish. Makes me wonder why I never heard of anyone with Lilja as a first name.

How are you coping?

Definitely not happy that he's not with the Wings, but as long as he doesn't sign with Pittsburgh or Chicago, I suppose I can deal with it.

Hell, if anything, it would give me a legit reason to get a Sharks jersey; I think I'm one of the few who actually likes their jersey.

I hope he get's a signed to an NHL team because he's a solid 5th/6th dman. He was rock solid before he got injured... I wouldn't be one bit surprised if Lilja proves to have a better year than Salei.

Neither would I. I honestly don't see what all the hype is over Salei or what he brings to the table that Lilja doesn't. I still think our PK is going to suffer again without Lils out there (unless we ditch McCrimmon...then, all bets are off).
