I haven't been a fan of Rinaldo (that's putting it mildly), but the Rinaldo I've seen this year is much better than other years. He's still physical, but he's turned into a pretty good PK'er and energy player/checker.

He's still getting calls based on reputation, and most of his hits come from flying halfway across the ice (but he doesn't get called for charging, for some unknown reason) but I'd say he'll do fine in the AHL and may get a shot at the NHL.

He doesn't have anywhere near Downie's skill (also putting it mildly), and I don't see the same kind of temperament. He can be a loose cannon, but in a different way.
