No. He's not needed. No since in blowing more cap space on yet another bottom pairing defenseman.

Isn't it possible for a player to elevate his game when he goes to another team? He looked good last night, and not just because of the goal he scored. I say sign him for depth and keep it cheap. I'm way more worried about goal tending, so I say sign more veteran D to help out the goal tending.

If we sign him, it makes one of our more expensive bottom pairing D-men expendable in a trade. Might give us the depth to package someone with prospects and or picks for a top 4 d-man.

I completly agree with you. IMO, I thought he played fine last night. And just because you give a guy a contract does not mean you cannot send him to the minors, or release/trade him if something better comes along later in the season.

Its obvious the sharks need something for the D. And we all know DW has spent most of the summer trying to fix it.

Perhaps this is the only option at the moment. But IMO, it makes the Sharks more flexable, and adds some depth with NHL experience.

Explain how eating up more cap space on bottom pairing dmen make the Sharks more flexable.

Im really not sure what everyone was watching last night. He didnt do anything and he was playing against a AHL line up. Moore is a better option at this point.

I was watching the Sharks last night. I also watched Lilja play a decent game. Dont see a problem with it. But hey- Im just a fan. I dont act like Im a GM...

So did everyone else in teal, and he was one of the better blueliners out there.

Preseason is not a competition against the other team, but all the guys wearing the same color jerseys as you. Lilja was towards the top of that battle last night.

I feel like DW was showcasing a lot of the young prospects in the Pre to set up a trade. Like someone said above, if we could swing huslins / pick / good prospect (greiss? mash? ferriero?) for a GOOD top 4 I would be satisfied.

And before people stomp on the names I listed, remember you gotta give to get. Other teams have probably figured out that DW is pursuing a d-man so no one is going to hand the sharks a gift.

In this market the Sharks will need to overpay IMO and much consternation will ensue on this board, but it needs to be done.

Signing Lilja will be a plus for this team.

but what does he bring over the other people in the Defensive core? He doesnt add anything that isnt already there, he doesnt add speed, he doesnt add a shutdown capability he doesnt add a big shot. I would be all for some kind of movement on Defense and I dont mind him on the back end but unless hes replacing Huskins for a million or less I dont see what he brings. I would rather let Moore stay and give him a shot at developing into an NHL dman. I also think hes at risk if the Sharks send him down.

There has to be a trade coming.

My take on it is this.

Lilja will be signed. He's better than Wallin or Huskins, and will probably come near league minimum.

Moore has been solid, but needs more NHL time to get a real determination. DW needs to give ONE of the kids a chance, and I think it's going to be Moore, at least short term.

Joslin we've barely seen, and is on very thin ice. I think the org wants to see how he responds in the AHL before they give him anymore NHl time.

Wallin is injured. We can hope fairly long term. If not, he's a problem because he can't be moved. He only has a NTC though (not NMC) so he could be waived (DO IT)

Huskins is expendable but the only real possibility I see at this point is waiving him, which seems somewhat unlikely since he'd be prone to re-entry waivers (which the org probably wouldn't risk).

There is also still Schaus, what's his status anyway? Did he get sent down? Either way, he's an option, he looked pretty good all camp.

Sharks are in a pickle because what they should ice is:

Boyle - Murray
Vlasic - Demers
Lilja - Moore
Schaus/Joslin

(leaving them around 4m in cap space)

But instead they'll ice:

Boyle - Murray
Vlasic - Demers
Wallin - Huskins
Lilja

(leaving them 1m in cap space)

If the Sharks waived Huskins and Wallin, signed Lilja to league minimum, it would leave them enough cap space to bring that top-4 without having to move anyone. Even Souray (on re-entry) would fit.

Frustrating, Wallin is really screwing this team over.

I didn't realize that Wallin is only a NTC and not NMC. Moving him and Huskins producing 4M in cap space would be a homerun. Lilja at the league min would be a good vet to have in the back pocket if Moore/Joslin/etc fall on their face. I was at the game last night and every time Huskins and Moore stepped out on the ice the puck was in the sharks zone the whole shift and it was against an AHL team.

A Swede for every pairing sounds about right.
