I know he's the type of guy that goes 100% all the time, and is always looking to hit somebody and go full speed (not a bad thing). Does this style of play (which I think is fine on its own), coupled with his reputation, hurt his value to the team? Basically, do you think there will be a point where his reputation and the attention that it brings outweighs his aggressive and physical style of play? I'm not making an opinion one way or the other, I'm asking because you guys will know better.

Absolutely 1000% disagree.

Rinaldo plays on the edge, but he has done an absolutely incredible job at keeping his cool and actually drawing penalties lately.

I love what that kid is bringing to the table.
