Huh, wonder why he's doing it.

 

I hope it's just for a love of the game, and not something more tragic.

 

Best of luck to him.

If he needed money, he probably could've gotten an NHL try-out with someone. I doubt its something like that.


He might just miss playing competitive hockey and wants something to do.

I thought it was as a coach or something.  I had no idea it was to play again.

I bet if he tears it up down there, he'll get a phone call at a chance to return to the NHL if he wants to.

NEW JERSEY In keeping with the fact they are the Devils, New Jersey actually went with a villain by the name of Lex Lou-Lamoriello, an evil genius who finds ways to get around the salary cap until he is stopped in his tracks by Bett-man.

Reminder that Rafalski retired with a year left on a $30 million dollar deal. He walked away from $6 million, I believe.

 

The real question is...is the Devils logjam on defense logjammed enough that Lou won't bite on him? You know Lou has an itch.

I love me some Rafalski. Always underrated and under appreciated here until it was too late. It was great to root for him again back in the 2010 Olympics.

Devils fans respect Rafalski very much.  He left for Detroit and I don't know of any Devils fan angry at him like we were when Parise left.

Under appreciated does not mean disrespected. I think many took his skills for granted and his offensive game was something we missed until we traded for Zidlicky. Not to mention, he was much more sound defensively as well.

Well I think it's because he always had Niedermayer and Stevens getting most of the attention.

Rafalski is one of my favorite players ever so I'm happy to hear that he's back in the game. According to Sportsnet he was skating with the Everblades to prepare for the Winter Classic alumni game. Looks like a pure love of the game move.
