Awesome. Happy this guy is staying in the west coast. John Scott will see him 4 times a year.

He was a great role player for the Canucks but I'm glad we didn't retain him at that price.

Best of luck in Phoenix, Raffi.

He can be clutch at times and hits like a bullet.

Good signing at 1.75M per.

Awww. Really?

Damn, wanted to keep him. Did unpredictably waver between knocking everyone around like a bowling ball and disappearing into the wood work, though. Was great in the playoffs until he started playing like he was terrified of being suspended if he threw a hit.

Later, Raffi. GL in the desert.

not bad, he can be very gritty but 3rd line at best for Torres. Gordon another depth guy.

Reminds me of the Dallas signings , filler 3rd liners

Had a weird love/hate relationship for Raffi.

In the end, as much as a ******* he is, good memories. Good luck in PHX, bud.

Phew. I was getting worried we were going to make it through the first page without an Oilers fan taking a shot at Vancouver.

1.7 for him is good... I wished we kept him at that price.

Dude was making $2.25M+/yr a few years ago... kinda thought he'd progress and be a regular top-6 player.

this is the only good news i've seen so far as a Coyotes fan. I've hated to see the team play against Torres for years. I should add some much needed grit to the team.

Why would anyone sign with the Coyotes in their current situation?

Well, in theory, they're signing with every profitable NHL team, since those teams are footing the bill for Phoenix and chipping in for Raffi's paycheck this coming season.

Phoenix, enjoy the stupid penalties.

Raffi, enjoy uncertainty about where your team is going to operate in coming years
