The problem is, unless the Wings just left Lilja's roster spot unfilled and went with 21 it's not like Lilja being replaced would really save any money.

Edit: Come on... we can't link to a tiny url site?

That's a 22 man roster with Hossa at 5.5 and all FA's returing at or below market value...

...and it costs 61.9 million. Assuming Hossa comes back, even replacing Hudler and Sammy with Kopecky and some other league-minimum slug barely gets the cap number under 60 million.

There's just no cap room there.
