Well, I think it is safe to say it did not go the way he pictured it going in his head Saturday against the Stars.
Fresh onto the ice, Rinaldo went after Stars agitator Antoine Roussel to try and get something started just 1:15 into the game. Roussel didn't want to go but that didn't stop Rinaldo...
I don't think earning a "two-five-ten-and-game" was what Craig Berube had in mind when he sent Rinaldo on the ice for his first shift.
Simply put, Rinaldo's actions cannot be defended and there is no room for that in the game.
In the first period, Rinaldo played a grand total of four seconds while putting up 27 penalty minutes. I challenge you to find someone who played less (but still played) and got more penalty minutes.
One thing to watch is whether or not the league plans to add any subsequent discipline for his actions.
