Lilja was one of at least 5 guys reasonably thought to be in competition for the 5-7 defensemen slot (Gervais, Gustaffson, MAB, Manning). I can buy Mezsaros being a potential driver for a signing/trade, but Lilja is easily replaced internally. The Flyers definitely have enough 6/7 defenseman to cover the loss of a Lilja, especially when no one has any reason to believe that we'll have played a significant amount of hockey before he's eligible to return from this surgery.
