Seeya, Lilja

The #Flyers have agreed to a contract with free agent D Andreas Lilja and signed RW Jakub Voracek to a contract extension.

Update per Paul:

3 years 1,7 per for lilja, unbelievable

Sorry, TSN’s McKenzie nixed that report.

And to think I complained about Holland not making moves…his non-moves compared to Holmgren’s moves?

The Flyers are cracking me up… simply CANNOT wait for the first PIT/PHI game.

Good for Lilja finding work; he seemed like a good guy.

Lilja gets $1.7 for 3 years?! We’re only two hours into free agency and already I feel SOOOO much better about that Big E contract….although I still hate it.

“I’ve been in the car all day with a few friends, driving to Gothenburg,” said Ericsson, who signed his new deal worth $9.75 million Friday morning. “We’re going to see Iron Maiden and Metallica this weekend. I’m pretty excited about that too.”

They’re still alive?

Garth, I have no idea what are liljas numbers, but if I were the red wings GM, I would rather have Ericsson for his price, over a FREE (ZERO cap space) Lilja

Capgeek shows red wings roster at

14 forwards

5 defensemen

1 goalie

With $10.9M cap space

The forwards include eaves, miller, emmerton, mursak, AND Hudler, the 5th highest paid forward at a cap hit of $2.875.

That’s already too many forwards, no room for Richards even if they’re thinking aboot it.  If they did get Richards, which will likely take >$7M, they’d probably give away Hudler.

A sixth Dman, plenty of money but no sense overpaying.

At this point we look weaker.
