Throws huge hits every game, can skate, and seems to be earning more and more ice time. Was out there in the dying minutes of tonight's game. Unfortunately, the refs make awful reputation calls on him constantly, a reputation he got from his junior days. I can't imagine how quickly he would have been sent to the box if he did what Byfuglien did to him after the whistle tonight.
I think hes useless and looking forward to seeing him off the team... BUT I do love how he pisses all the other teams fans and players off. People get SO MAD at a 6 min a night agitator. You know he is doing his job really well when that happens.
After that call on the Flyers feed they panned the camera to Rinaldo talking to someone and you could read his lips saying "that was a bad call".
Exactly. And despite what people say around here, he has a lot of respect for the league this season. He realized that he can't get by acting like a jack*** all the time. There have been quite a few instances this season where he's shown some humility.
