In other words, if defending a player that one likes, he will refer to his +/- as a positive if it is good or decent, but if it's bad or horrendous, they will say that that stat is useless in defense of their player.
+/- is useless across teams but has some value within a team.
Duguay was a great example of an overrated player. He was flashy and had some offense, so fans loved him, but the guy either couldn 't or wouldn't play D, so he was a near constant negative.
