That's a bit of an exaggeration. He has 6.51 toi/g so far while Nödl has 10.52, but only 7.48 of that is on even strength, the rest is on the pk. So Rinaldo is only sat for about two shifts or so per game, I'd say.
Still, with someone like a (healthy enough) Betts out there, you'd have someone that could take pk time if necessary as well.
