Ray Rides Again?

OK. This I don’t get.
The Senators are trying to bring Rob Ray out of retirement.
I understand that the Senators are looking for some muscle and grit. That’s understandable. But if they just want someone who can fight, they can probably find someone in the AHL, or even the ECHL. They don’t need to be dragging guys out of retirement.
The only other reason I can think of for the Senators wanting Ray is that they’re putting together some kind of on-ice strip show for the intermissions.
