A very misleading statement, as Rafalski never received serious consideration for the award while Blake actually did. Top ten Norris trophy finishes:

Blake: 1, 3, 3, 4, 5, 8

Rafalski: 9, 9, 9

Blake was clearly better.
You don't think Rafalski was a #1 defenseman? Even though he finished 9th, 9th and 9th for the Norris Trophy? He was the Devils #1 after the last lockout and wasn't too shabby at it. As for the poll though, easily Blake.
