Rafalski's retirement is a shocker since I don't recall reading any hints he was considering it.

Weight has been showing his age ever since the 2006 Carolina win and was rumored to be on verge of retirement the past 2 summers IIRC.

Weight was an obvious one. But Rafalski was a suprise. I thought he would come back for atleast one more

it has been speculated for a while, he'll very likely take a position with the team. he was behind the bench in the last 3 games i believe.

Dougie Weight one of my favorite Oilers EVER!!! Still remember the goal vs calgary I can't remember the year but it was on the opening of NHL 2000 I think. Whenever he is in Edmonton he still visits the sick kids hospital even when the camera's are not around. Classy player.

The weight retirement was preditcted last fall when he said he was playing year to year

when did ek call the refulski one

I know one of the talking heads in detroit talked about it at the deadline as saying he had talked to refalski and he said he would deicide at the end of the season and that was about around the trade deadline--So if Ek said it after the deadline he does not score points
