As per your point about Staal playing against the other teams top lines, Staal is usually paired with Girardi. Other time, Torts puts Girardi on the 2nd unit just to add some depth to our d-line.

Also, Redden is a -1. Plus/Minus isn't always telling of a players performance.
If you're referring to me, when did I say he was a waste of space?

I understand about the plus/minus, but if Staal and Girardi are paired most of the time then why is there such a difference in the numbers? The difference is now 14 after yesterday's game
