I have to assume that that was the only way he'd sign, and they felt the risk was worth it.
Lilja is coming off a 1-year 600K deal... I very much doubt too many teams were jumping up and down to offer him 2 years at twice that rate (given that he isn't very good). The contract is dumbfounding.
And top 6 or not, he will almost surely be at the NHL level the next two years.
