post Shocking – Lilja Not Signed

Per Pollak.  I’m not being facetious here.  I thought for sure he’d be on the opening day roster.  I guess that means two things- one, that Niclas Wallin is healthy enough to play.  Two, that Lilja wasn’t playing better (or better by a big enough margin) to play every night, so they might as well have Mike Moore or somebody else in the #7 slot.  We’ll be talking all about that tonight, along with our season preview.  Email us or post something on FB if you want us to talk about something specific.

    I wonder if Lilja thought… “Why should I take less than 1m if Kent Huskins gets 1.7m and I’m better than Huskins…?”

      That’s what I’m betting on. They couldn’t agree on price, or maybe the Sharks wanted a 2-way deal like Leach has?

  2. MJ says:

    look at the bright side… least Lilja won’t have to deal with all of our trash-talking this season.

  3. Cyoor says:

    So is it sure that he wont be signed later?

    I wanted lilja tbh.. He is stable and you know where you got him imo.

  4. WingsFanInSharkLand says:

    Kirk Maltby was placed on waivers today. That’s a guy the Sharks should take a look at.

    I’m surprised Lilja didn’t make the cut. He turned down $1M to stay in Detroit so I think the guys above are probably right.

    @MJ – that doesn’t seem like a bright side for us. I get a kick out of the trash talking.
