Meltzer points out the numbers game back on D in todays blog's a legit concern.

I did have to laugh at this description of Lilja in the same post....limitations is an understatement. I don't know about anybody else but all those limitations suggest he shouldn't even be in the NHL...

Finally..looks like the 2yr contract he got is presenting a problem afterall if they can't trade the dude. When we signed him plenty of people could not fathom why it was for 2 yrs.....

While some fans acted like Lilja had no business in the NHL, I thought he was adequate as a part-time third-paring defenseman who averaged 13:41 of ice time per game. He has his share of limitations -- poor mobility, no offensive game, difficulty triggering outlet passes and zone clears under pressure -- but he did bring some positives to the table....
