There is no point for Rinaldo to go back to Jrs. If you saw any of the playoffs you'd have seen the league being totally intent on screwing him royally.
He got a huge suspension for nothing that bad -a blind side hit on a guy not paying attention- then when he came back they just gave him penalty after penalty for doing nothing at all.
It was a total screw job - they were literally running him out of the league.
If he can't make the Phantoms, he'd be better off the ECHL where the refs aren't after him constantly - at least yet.
Then if he gets his act together, he won't have to deal with all the garbage from Branch. If he doesn't cut down on the extraneous stuff, he'll never make it anyway. If he does, he has the speed, skill and hitting ability to be a great NHL 3/4 line winger and pest.
