He has a knack for doing hilarious, sneaky little things that are generally harmless but drive people crazy, similar to Ruutu.
Ya Rinaldo is a *******, who is trying to hurt people.
Farnham plays right on the edge, but he won't cheapshot people with dirty hits. It's more like an extra shove after a whistle, face washing, sneaky elbows, whatever he can do to piss people off. He is good at getting people off their games. A lot like what we are seeing from Bort right now... But Farnham has agitating mastered.
Like I said, he will throw down if he has to. So he isn't a typical pest who runs away. I'm sure he will goad some good players into fights and get them off the ice.
I have no idea how the Pens feel about him, but he could literally be a Vitale clone on the fourth line.
Maybe if Adams leaves next year... Oh wait...
