Some good answers..but I'm going with Maurice "The Rocket" Richard. The Habs dropped him from their reserve list, no one claimed him, and then he went on to become the first 500-goal scorer in NHL history. Read about it in the great book, The Captain Class by Sam Walker.      source

This nonfiction book delves into the rising rates of anxiety, depression, and suicide on college campuses and nationally, and explores the origins of the problem. Through investigating three terrible ideas that have become commonplace in American childhood and education, the authors outline how this culture of safetyism interferes with young people's development. The book is perfect for anyone who is confused by the changes taking place on college campuses, has children, or is concerned about Americans' growing inability to live, work, and cooperate across party lines.
