Rajala has no interest in playing in NA. The Oilers wanted a contract spot.

There's a reason why Rajala's contract was mutually terminated.
Well, maybe MacT should be trying a little harder to make him interested in playing in North America.

After all, he was here, wasn't he?

Did MacT ever sit down with him and sell him on staying, tell him where he's going to fit, tell him he's going to get a 1 way deal after his ELC, etc.?

A competent manager would have done that.
