Just a quick update on the Andreas Lilja “try-out” discussion that arose today following reports that Red Wings GM Ken Holland has left the door open for Lilja to attend Wings training camp in Traverse City. While Lilja never came out and said he was definitely going to attend camp and take the Wings up on their offer, some of his comments earlier today made it seem as if the free agent defenseman was at least considering making the trip with his former teammates tomorrow.  Not so says agent Todd Diamond:

“False reports….if we accept a try-out offer it will likely be with another club.”

One way or another, this will all be settled tomorrow morning when the Wings bus rolls out at 8:00 AM, with or without Lilja.
