You don't wait and hope he is still available later or hope that your alternate is available later. You get the player you want.
There are certain situations where you might wait, but for a 6/7 D-man, you get the guy you want, not the guy that is left over
What situation than? Cause this is the exact situation when you wait. Its not like there were gonna be 12 teams going all out for Lilja and its not like losing out on him would destroy the team.
