@TheFourthPeriod: Flyers add Andreas Lilja to the blueline.


The Flyers look dangerous this year. :ph34r:

I was actually hoping that the Wings would re-sign him. Philly is making a lot of moves, but I can't make out a grand strategy in them.
Check out my short e-book on the Red Wings' 1937 Stanley Cup championship entitled: "Nothing Could Keep 'Em Down." Please download it from my profile at Smashwords: https://www.smashwor...ile/view/victor

New e-book: The Spanish-American War: A Brief History. Relatively short, introductory read for casual history buffs and people who want to learn more about a forgotten war that changed America. Available at BN.com, Smashwords, Kobo, and Diesel E-Books right now. Same link as above.

That's because there isn't one.

Lilja must have a hell of an agent for him to keep getting jobs after his concussion.

Good on him.

Sad Liljafan is sad.

Now he's playing with Pronger, so I can't root for him at all.

Good luck, Andreas.

@TSNBobMcKenzie
Lilja numbers are wrong...sorry, wrong player. Marcel Goc gets 3 x $1.73M with Florida. My mistake.

I do wonder what is going to happen to Simmonds now. Philly already getting really close to the cap limit.

Huh. We could have afforded that. Known quantity for the Wings' system too. Oh well.

Wouldn't that have been something? You, me, and Dawn flitting about with streamers, champagne, and confetti. The rest of LGW headed towards the nearest cliff.

Good on him.

He's healthy enough to play, yes he's at risk of it happening again but he did fine last season. If you blacklist every player for a previous injury you'll never take anyone.

We sure would be happy. I was hoping he might come back here but no :(

Thanks Offsides

Figured he'd go there.

Dave Schultz, Paul Holmgren, Glen Cochrane, Behn Wilson, Dave Brown, Craig Berube, Donald Brashear, and now.....Andreas Lilja. Flyers continue their tradition.

Wonder if he'll wear Wilson's old number 3 there?

I still can't see Philly making it that far in the playoffs. Even with Jagr and Lils and all the other moves they are making. They are looking for the right direction but I don't think they've found it yet.

Crosby is definitely scared out of his mind right now.

They need Hudler, and we have just the Hudler they're looking for.

I believe the strategy was something along the lines of "We're a year out from our 6 game SCF loss... Change everything."
