It was another tough year for Stephane Robidas this season. The veteran Stars defenseman fought through his usual myriad of injuries and crushing hits to prove once again that he's the toughest S.O.B on this team. Unfortunately, his age really showed this season and it's glaringly apparent that he's just not cut out for a role as a first pair defensemen for this team anymore.
Robidas was getting beaten or lost more often this season than any other that I can remember. He was just out of place for so many opposing scoring chances and would just flat out lose his man in coverage so often. He's just too slow now to keep up with the faster players in the league and he became a turnstile out there. A first pairing of Robidas and Trevor Daley or Sheldon Souray may have been the best...
