Zac Rinaldo

Last season, Rinaldo showed glimpses of becoming a solid NHL player. He will always be an agitator, but there is big difference between taking penalties and drawing them. According to ExtraSkater.com, Rinaldo drew three more penalties than he took last season. This season, however, Rinaldo has taken 12 more than he has drawn. His play has regressed and he is prone to taking bad penalties. It looks as if the penalty killing experiment has failed, or is at least on hold. As far as disappointments go, Rinaldo is near the top of the list.
