So i went to phoenix coyotes hfboard since there are not a lot of coyotes forums on the net and the det-pho thread might be the most insulting and unclassy thread i seen. Basically it is a bunch of fans there making jokes of empty joe Louis arena (thats funny coming from coyotes fans), not wanting to live in Michigan and zero respect for Red Wings as a club. Even pens fans showed more respect than that ***** fanbase.
A couple of years ago, this thread would never happen on LGW, but face it. Lilja is a valuable d-man to the franchise. He is not Lidstrom valuable of course, but a solid contribution to the blue line. Ever since Lils got back in the lineup, Detroit has won a lot of games. Coincidence? Maybe, but he sure is way better then meech, ericsson and lebda. Also, wings did miss lilja in last years playoffs.
