Still weird seeing Lilja in a new uni :(
Alex Trebek: Sure you will. And finally, back again, Burt Reynolds in a commanding lead with $14.
Burt Reynolds: Hey. Hey, ah... check out the podium. Look at this.
Alex Trebek: Mr. Reynolds has apparently changed his name to Turd Ferguson.
Burt Reynolds: Yeah, that's right. Turd Ferguson. It's a funny name.

Lebda is making $1.45 million to play for Toronto (when he's not watching from the press box). Meanwhile Lilja is making $600k and has had a significant role in settling down the Ducks blueline.

crazy world.

That's more of a beard, he looks much better when it's like that.

My worst Wing's (since 2000):

Andreas Lilja
- The first year he was here, I was astounded he made the team. This guy brought absolutely nothing to the ice. Here was an about 6'2", 200 lbs plus d-man, who didn't use his size at all. Didn't get his stick in the way. Couldn't pass, shoot, or hit worth a darn. The only reason I even thought they brought him in was in the hopes that he may one day use his size to his advantage...and it never happened. He was constantly bad on a team with very few weak links, let alone out right bad players. At that point he wasn't only not bringing any pluses to the rink, he was a liability. The Selanne goal ('07 playoffs), on Lily's give-away, wasn't a surprise at all to me at the time. My only shock was why they even let him on the ice in that OT at all. Would have taken Patrick Boileau or Cory Cross instead, anyday.

Fast forward to '09-'10. Lilja was no longer a constant liability. He rarely was my scapegoat anymore. He wasn't great but he wasn't bad enough to constantly stand out. There was even one game, one of the last I saw him in, that I thought he might have had the best game out of our players that particular night. Needless to say, it was quite the occassion.


Lilja was not perfect, he certainly had issues. But he made a great deal of improvement in his time here and was a solid third pairing defenseman, who is certainly capable of playing in the top four.

Boyd Devereaux
-Skated like a newborn deer, just a bit better than Holmstrom. Only difference is, Holmstrom knows what he's doing with a stick in his hands. This dude played on an explosive line, with Dats and Hull, and still couldn't muster more than 25 points. There was nothing more than very short glimpses of anything more and who knows why Edmonton drafted him so high..


Did you ever see Devereaux play? Even once? You sit there saying he couldn't skate. Skating was about all he could do. He was a decent backchecker and he showed glimpses of real skill, but he never put it together.


Robert Lang. (Not at first, but the longer he stayed here.)
- No heart. Doesn't belong on a Wings team. Lazy.


Lang's style didn't match the Wings' style. Adjusting was difficult for him. When he wasn't as productive playing on the second line in his first season in an unfamiliar system as he was playing top line in a system built around him, fans turned on him.

Derian Hatcher
- High expectations, no follow through. Me and my GF used to joke he'd literally be better without a stick.

There's probably more, but Lilly is obviously the one who I feel like i've been subjected to the most.


Hatcher's biggest problem was not the expectations or the injuries; it's the fact he was never really that good to begin with. The expectations were already more than he was able to deliver before any kind of failure on his part occurred.

That stache doesn't look like a porn stache. It just looks like a stache. As in, it doesn't really stick out to me.


It's only a couple of weeks old. It'll grow.

As much as I hate the Ducks, I totally support their mustache growing.

George Parros looks like a completely different person sans mustache. Freaked me out. :lol:
