LOL. Last time he fought he got his ass kicked to the LTIR.

Glad he found work, just wish he found it elsewhere.

I was always hard on Lilja for his mistakes.

I know he is loved around here. But the truth of the matter is, he gambled and he lost!

Fortunately he found a home. And fortunately we got rid of Lebda, and have a pretty decent D now!

Good luck to you Lils, just not against us!

I guess I'm happy he's found a role somewhere. Maybe he can prove himself all over again and get promoted to a real team. Meanwhile, he can hope that Carlyle's brain completely implodes and he's replaced.

"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

Really? Did he knock up your mom and never called back or something?


In that case, somebody's got some daddy issues.

I'm happy for Lils for the fact that he doesn't have to leave the NHL and go play in Sweden. I definitely wish it was a team more worthy of what a great person and teammate Lilja is. I'll miss him for sure. I like how Salei plays, but I do hope to maybe see Lils back in the Winged Wheel someday.

The fact that Lily was only a few days away from being deported if he didn't find a jobs makes this a lot easier to take but still.....seeing him sign with that dump of a team sucks...

Good luck Lils is all I can say. Unfortunately, you probably won't have much with the Anaheim Sucks.

It's a good signing for the Ducks. They need some solid defense. And honestly, it looks like this was Andreas' last chance to stay in the country, so I don't begrudge him that. He'll get good minutes in Anaheim, to boot.

I just tell myself this...at least it wasn't Pittsburgh. *sigh*

Pretty lame. I hate the Ducks so much I guess I don't like Lilja anymore. :thumbdown:

I really don't understand why Columbus didn't offer him something good. He could have done very well there.

I don't really blame Lilja. But this just sucks for Wings fans.

So that means he's going to have to jump in the scrum to protect Perry? I wonder if he can use the conscientious objector card?

Hate to open a past wound but I hope Lilja "gives back" for his 2007 blunder.

I don't know why theres such a love fest for Lilja. I remember in like 07' everyone use to hate him. Then all of a sudden the year after we won the Cup everyone started lovin' the guy.

It's kind of a head scratcher.

Not quite. We still hated him even after they won the cup. But in 08-09 he started to play very, very well. That is, for his standards. He looked like a top-4 quality defenseman on the bottom pairing.

As if they needed another fighter. Toughest team in hockey now.

Him and Selanne will probably become friends.


:lol: I love the responses these posts of yours elicit.


Yea, because this is what puts them over the top in their division, with this added toughness they will beat San Jose, LA, and the Yotes and retake their rightful place at the top :rolleyes:



They need defensemen.



Lilja is not going to be fighting. He does not want another hit to the head.



LOL. Last time he fought he got his ass kicked to the LTIR.

Glad he found work, just wish he found it elsewhere.

I'm glad he signed with someone, but not happy that he's with the Ducks. Hopefully he'll find a way to have a good year and end up somewhere better next year.

Well, I look at it this way. A job is a job. You do your job, you take your paycheck, say thank you, and when the contract is over, you go where you really want to be. I think that's what he's looking at.

As for gooning it up with us when they come back, I think he's got enough respect for the guys that he'd look at them and say, "you gotta be kidding".
