Look, mm, if you're going to post exactly what I want to say all the time, I'm going to go pretty stagnant on the post counts. Help me out here, would you?

So ... yes, I agree. The 7th dman and depth forward are exactly the players where saving some significant cap space is as important as getting the right guy. There are always going to be some serviceable guys who just want a contract to stay in the NHL after the dust settles. The first rule should be that anyone at or over 35 years old have to stand out by a big margin to be considered on a depth contract. This just makes the Lilja signing well-nigh impossible to explain. I won`t even ask you to try, DFF; it would be the mental equivalent of looking at an eclipse.
