Rinaldo gets screwed on calls more than any player I can recall. That's a separate issue from his play, which seems to have regressed this year. But I'm willing to slightly give him a pass considering he often gets 2 minutes for playing hockey.
When everybody is healthy neither Zac or Rosehill should be seeing the ice. Vandevelde-Hall-Downie is solid, you could actually roll 4 lines and give that 4th line a regular shift and not be hurting yourself. Or if you'd rather a more physical presence give McGinn a shot, he skates pretty well, he can be physical, and he'll give you a simple north-south game without hurting you in your own end.
I like Rinaldo and I get why the FO and Berube like him. He's physical and fast so they see an ideal "energy guy". But between his play and the penalties (they still count, even if some aren't legit) he's hurting the team.
