If Holmgren had signed someone to replace (ie, upgrade), the media would probably have been okay with it. Besides, Holmgren shouldn't be GMing to appease the masses, especially the press who have generally shown only a marginal notion of what is a good move for this team.

Though Shelley is a better fighter than Cote, the terms are still ridiculous.

I don't think Lilja will be O'Donnell 1.0. Plus he's signed for more cash and more years. There was no reason to leap on Lilja.

Why don't you give him a chance in our system before you say its a terrible signing?
It's a long season, so let's not do any chicken-counting. Plus, considering the youth movement this team has just taken on forward, what is the need to bring in a 35+ player, whose skills aren't exactly superior, over a couple of legitimate rookie, low-cost options?
