Man Sharks know how to troll. Making Griess sit in the press box in Germany and now releasing Lilja in Sweden.

Good for DW not giving in to Lilja's contract demands and/or finally realizing that Lilja isn't much of an upgrade of what the Sharks already have. I'm still worried about the defense, but Lilja wouldn't have solved the problem.

I'm guessing DW figured his play wasn't enough of an upgrade to pass over the young guys, especially since Moore would have to clear waivers. With the lack of interest in Lilja, can't imagine he was trying to drive a hard deal on comp. TSN article mentions his visa is up October 10 so if he doesn't find a team he has to leave the U.S. and his kids are enrolled in school in Detroit. Doesn't sound good from a family perspective.

Doug Wilson is just a chauvinist. He hates foreigners.

That only applies to 35+ multi-year contracts. Wallin can be buried if they so choose. Doubt it will happen though.

Did the Sharks stop the bus and tell Lilja to get off and find his way home?

Well, at least there's some breathing room. Better than nothing. Doubt it'll happen now but maybe at the deadline.

I bet the selling point for the tryout was, 'Hey, look. You try out for us and at the very worst, the NHL pays for your flight home.'

Maybe they went with him though. I mean, even if the NHL didn't pay for the fam, he still gets a free flight out of it. lol Besides, why do you got to ruin a good joke, jerk?

CBA requires "flight home" from training camp, so if that's Detroit, that's where the final destination will be.

Can Leach still be brought up? Or does he have to go through the whole waiver process I know nothing about?

He has to go through waivers. That's how we got him IIRC and I am pretty sure I do, but after my last blunder, I'm not guaranteeing anything today
