As for the others, well, usually players do have "chips on their shoulders" because they're unwanted somewhere else, and thats usually for a reason
The phrase is used when someone is out to prove everyone wrong who says they can't.
Yes, Semenov had outside issues, but other teams in the NHL still passed on him.
Other teams passed on Fedotenko and Exelby.
Weather or not it was justified, they still probably have pride as hockey players, and would like to prove to themselves and everyone else that they were wrong.
Take Prospal last year for example.
