from Scott Burnside of ESPN,
Stephane Robidas’ face is a window to an NHL career.
The face tells the story of a career forged the hard way, a career forged against odds and setbacks. Battered and misshapen, it is the face against which teammates can gauge their own willingness to compete and sacrifice. A face that silently asks: “Am I willing to do that?”
“Count the surgeries on his face and you’ll know how he plays,” Dallas Stars teammate Brad Richards told ESPN.com on the eve of the regular season. “He battles like I’ve never seen.”
We use the term underrated a lot in the NHL. It usually means someone who doesn’t get paid a lot relative to the stars, but quietly performs above and beyond the call of duty. But underrated sometimes applies to someone who makes something of an opportunity, however slender, however long it takes.
