what is even more important, is that Robinson came across these points pretty honestly. By that I mean, he was not a coattail-rider:

1934: Robinson was 3rd on the Maroons, behind Northcott and Smith, who definitely played together, with Jimmy Ward. Therefore, Robinson definitely outscored whoever he was playing with.

1935: Robinson led the Maroons in scoring by an 8-point (30%) margin. This team included Herb Cain, Baldy Northcott and Hooley Smith.

1937: Robinson was 2nd on the Maroons behind Bob Gracie, who played with Herb Cain and an undrafted. Therefore, Robinson definitely outscored whoever he was playing with, and by a minimum of five points.

The move marked the start of a nine-year association with the Maroons that provided Robinson with a venue to develop his game from a low scoring journeyman to a respectable forward with some fire in his stick.

During his second campaign in Montreal, the versatile forward was dispatched to the Windsor Bulldogs of the IAHL where he continued to refine his game. During the 1930-31 season, he led the league in scoring with 63 points in 48 games. As such, the Maroons brought him back to Montreal for half a season before returning him to the Bulldogs to close out the campaign.

In 1932-33, however, Robinson finally secured a regular spot on the Maroons' roster. From then on, he became a solid performer who could be counted on for steady offensive production. All of his efforts reached a peak at the close of the 1934-35 season when the Maroons won their second and final Stanley Cup as a franchise.

Robinson remained with the club for an additional three seasons before being traded to the Chicago Blackhawks. By then, his offensive performance had been in decline for some time. The following year, he was sold to the Montreal Canadiens where he played only eleven games before leaving the NHL for good.
