Exactly like +/- stats are clear indicators on a team. If one player has a +5 and everyone else on his team has a -10 then you know that the player is probably better defensively (or at least produces a lot of 5on5 goals to counter his give aways).
Fair enough, but then you need to look at the other factors.

Halak, until the last couple of months was purely a back-up and sometime went 2+ weeks without playing. That's going to have some effect on you.

I'm not saying Halak has played incredibly better than Price this season, but he has been the better goalie for the year as a whole. Their winning %'s (Price: 0.489, Halak: 0.545) also speak for themselves, though neither is exceptional.
