but, of course!

Hitting can get you the puck, keep the other team from moving the puck, bang up players, wear down defenseman, or draw someone into a penalty. Most 4th liners aren't going to be scoring if they have the puck anyway, so it's important for them to be able to keep the other team from scoring. That's something Rinaldo still has to work on, but his hitting and really his skating, which allows him to hit, will be very useful if he's able to turn himself into an effective penalty killer and defensive player.

Rinaldo is a giant pain in the ass on the ice for the opposition. He can skate, he can hit, he can shoot and pass. He knows his role and plays it well.

Rinaldo is not sitting. He played his role perfect last year. He brings something unique to the lineup.

If Rinaldo controls himself and avoids dumb penalties and suspensions then he is an incredibly valuable player to the Flyers.

You can score without having the puck or touching it with the stick. Just ask Simmonds!

As long as Lavi is around Rinaldo will have a roster spot. This is not to say Rinaldo, at least last season, didn't earn his spot outright by first being one of the most consistent players on the Phantoms and then carrying it over to the Flyers. With less actual fighting in the league, agitators like Rinaldo are more valuable than the naysayers like to admit. Rinaldo keeps the opposition honest and distracted and last year he got more consideration from the refs and Rinaldo was the catalyst for a lot of Flyers power plays.

Haters can continue to hate Rinaldo but he's come a long way....with him, Cousins and the Ghoul....teams are going to go all postal against us like Pittsburgh...

Rinaldo is turning into everything we hoped Carcillo would become. Unfortunately Rinaldo doesn't have Carcillo's offensive capabilities, as limited as they were.
