Rafalski to test free agent market???

The New York Post is reporting that the devils resigning of Brian Rafalski is “no longer a slam dunk.” Rafalski has the same agent as Kimmo Timonen who was able to sign a lucrative deal with the Flyers in the past week.

The Timonen signing has complicated the situation because Rafalski earned 4.2 million dollars last season and would have most likely accepted a modest raise to stay as a Devil if they had made the offer soon after they were eliminated.

     I would sooner have Rafalski @6 million over Souray at the same price, and I really like Souray as a player.

    Defensemen can name their price.

    Thank you Philadelphia Flyers. Thanks to your vast overpayment of a player in a desparate move to attempt to regain credibility in the hockey world, you have taken the first step in the death of the NHL.

    How's that $48M Cap going to work when everybody with any semblance of talent wants $6M a year?

    The ramifications of that contract will be felt for the next few years, and that is clear.

    Everybody overpays in this league, your acting like the Flyers are the only one, get a life.
