Alex Daigle and Cory Locke say hi. Huge numbers in Juniors yet they are no where to be found on an NHL roster. Why? becuase their game didnt translate into an NHL game. Rinaldo was drafted based on what he did in junior, one would assume that the reason he is in the NHL is because what he was drafted for ahs translated to the NHL, whther or not you agree with the coaches decision to put him in is another question.
But stop belittling someone because he wasnt a junior star. last I checked this is the NHL, you earn your way into the league based on what you do to impress the coaches and staff, not how many points you put up in Junior or where you were drafted. Your notion that junior scoring prowess = effective 4th line player is hilarious.
Rinaldo serves a purpose. However, that purpose has no importance to the overall success of the team. He is not an effective 4th liner. He is Riley Cote, but probably not as nice a guy.
