I don't mean to sound like an ass here, but in a way I see Lilja as damaged goods, and as much as I'd like to see him here for a few more years I'd hate for him to tie up a roster spot, and cap space if he were to have another head injury that would take him outta action for a long period of time.
I think signing Brookbank and letting Lilja go would be a good move. We would save cap space and Brookbank gives everything pre injury Lilja adds plus a lot more effectiveness at it.
If Brookbank could be had cheap you could sign both Lilja for a season and see who deserves to stay
I don't see Lilja being the same player over the course of a whole year.
