I will be the first to admit that I underestimated Berube but he is not above criticism. When an injury immediately makes your team better - you might have been making a lineup mistake. I love hits and fights just as much as anyone but Rinaldo doesn't play significant minutes, isn't great defensively, has no offensive talent and that's about it. Not interested in 95% of his whiff checks and turnovers and near wins vs. middleweights just to get one highlight of him knocking out BJ Crombeen...

McGinn is twice the hockey player Rinaldo is and they're a better team with him in the lineup.



Zac's a big hitter and fast skater on a soft, slow team. Necessary for an energy line. Good skills? Of course not, most guys that play his role don't. He is what he is and most players don't enjoy playing against him. Can't believe the hate he gets from some fans on here.
