He's a goon. Takes untimely penalties and has little control of his emotion. Not a fan.

Watched him play in London enough to know he's absolutely useless. Never a game where he didn't do something completely stupid and hurt the team in some way. Terrible player.

OP is mad that he drew 2 penalties tonight while not taking any.

Really rustled the jimmies of the Jets players and their fans.

What is, to get bullied by Dion and run away from Colton Orr.

I don't like him, but there are way worse players in the league than Zac Rinaldo. To Rinaldo's credit, he seems to be a decent skater and a big hitter.

Jimmies were mildly rustled I do admit, but that Peluso hit on Rinaldo was a thing of beauty.

Sure, but if you watch him in divisional play, he does some pretty boneheaded stuff. Chris Neil, he is not.

I'm not going to lie, I like him. Sure he takes a lot of dumb penalties, but he hits anything that moves, and isn't afraid to fight (obviously doesn't fight heavyweights).

Good 4th line agitator who can hit, fight (not all that well), and skate.

While causing people to make threads on the main board about him

No doubt he got crunched after he got away with a borderline hit right before.

Honestly couldn't believe they didn't call boarding.

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.

What an awesome thread. Well thought out.

Because he's a great agitator, and consistently lays people the **** out!

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".

He's in the league for the same reason you made this thread.

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.

If Rinaldo was 6-5 he would send people to the hospital with his hits. He uses his his legs and follows through as well anyone I have ever seen hit.

Agitates.

Does take some dumb penalties, but many are just reputation ones.

He is not the same player he was in junior, he is very effective when he plays under control, which is most of the time in the nhl.

Opposing fans crying like babies is another bonus!

hits like a truck

plays borderline, which can hurt his team at times but it's not entirely detrimental
