Rafalski At The Top Of His Game

from Wayne Coffey of the NY Daily News,

He’s bald and small and the oldest player on his team. He has a crooked smile and the flamboyance of an accountant. Brian Rafalski doesn’t do much of anything to command attention, except trying to do whatever is required to win.

“Whatever they put me out there for that’s what I’ll play,” Rafalski said after practice Thursday….

“It took me 60 games to get four (goals) in the NHL. I don’t know what’s going on,” Rafalski said. His Red Wing teammate, Valteri Filppula, is a Finnish forward.

“He’s a really, really good player,” Filppula said. “Plays well and definitely he looks like a young guy out there.”
