Stephane Robidas didn't do as well as he would have liked in his stint with HIFK Helsinki of the Finnish league.
Robidas had two goals and five points in 15 SM-liiga games. "The Finnish League is very good, and the challenges are really tough," Robidas said. "The rinks are all different sizes, so sometimes you get a big European rink and sometimes you get a rink that's closer to the NHL. You have to adjust game to game. It's an intense league, so they play very hard." Robidas thinks he put too much pressure on himself, but on a positive note, his hip and shoulder felt good. He's had hip and shoulder problems in the past.
