Recall some of the earlier debates about Rafalski's value to the Wings, and maybe being overpaid at $6m. Are Wings posters seriously underrating his importance and what that level of control costs? If Scotty is right, and he usually is, the fact the game has moved from the neutral zone battles to defensive zone battles and maintaining pressure really should enhance the value of the Rafalskis of the league.
I think Rafalski is very underrated. He is a very important piece to our team.
