OK, given the dates, it's no surprise that an '80s Oiler is in first, but Huddy still beat some pretty good competition.
Never been a fan of +/- because, as you somewhatn oted, it can be highly inflated by what team you're on. It can perhaps be used as a support for a guy for two-way play and very low +/- and high scoring will make me see if a guy has anything contradiction the slight suggestion of poor defensive paly, but still don't think it's a good evaluator of the quality of a guy defensively- especially since we can't compare it to old guys, who may be excellent or better than Huddy in +/- departmenr for all we know.
