When Rinaldo is signed, and his deficiencies are magnified by older, smarter players, I'm sure I'll have more to say about it then.
Rinaldo has been excellent since the Hunter brothers acquired him. I also like the fact he's a little ball of hate. And it's funny to hear about how "no one will want him on the team" when the talk here in London is just how important he is to the team. He does the dirty work that no one else wants to do. I like the fact he's not afraid to get his hands and nose dirty, will do whatever it takes to win and if it means doing something dirty, so be it. All what the guy wants to do is win and he'll do anything to win. There's not enough players like that in the Philadelphia farm system right now. He's going to be a very important player. And on top of it, Rinaldo is even being considered for the checking line on Team Canada's WJC team, so they obviously see something that they like about his game.
