Wings Fans, You Have Your Whipping Boy For Two More Years

For a cap hit of $1.93 million. So it’s a raise. But still not a bad deal for a guy who, all things considered, was the best option for the money.

18 players signed and $4 million in space to sign Abdelkader, Helm, Miller, and Eaves*, as well as either Meech or Lilja. Lilja’s price is probably too high to fit in with that group, so unfortunately for us we’re likely stuck with Meech. But here’s hoping a way to keep Lilja is found.

*I’m making the easy assumption on Maltby: organizational loyalty only goes so far, unfortunately for him.

    I'm glad Bertuzzzi is back. I hated that they signed him last season but he won me over. I think he played harder than just about everybody in the playoffs. He may have lost a step, but I think he's bouncing back and seems to relish playing the game again. I expect a solid year for him. I hate Lilja – he's always around when a goal is scored…. chipping away at the puck and missing, getting bumped off the play, standing five feet away from the guy he's supposed to mark. Meech isn't great, but Lilja needs to go.
