I agree that I hope some other organization picks him up and that contract is no longer in the Flyers hands.
Rinaldo won't fight the big guys, though. Even though it's not really needed in today's game, it would be nice to have some protection besides Shelley. Since Sestito could actually take a regular shift and be a factor out there I don't like this move at all. Sestito was actually someone the opposition had to look out for, he was pretty violent on the forecheck.
