That was basically all accumulated against the top team in the league. He was -4 in one game versus SJ probably lined up against Thornton, Marleau, and Heatley. Add in Edmonton isn't a good team whose also plagued with injuries and its not hard to figure out.
on the contrary, he has 7 points in only 13 games and also logs the most ice time in Edmonton. He is fine defensively. I guess you also believe Rod Brind'Amour and Todd Marchant are bad defensive players or are they good defensive players playing on bad teams and nightly face top lines. The good old +/- stat to show defensive prowess.
