Can Anyone Explain How Redden Was a Plus/Minus Leader in 2009/10?

Certain fans feel the need to downgrade dmen who don't pulverize the opponent. Always been that way, always will be that way. That is why there are endless threads of this ilk.
That Redden managed to extract millions from the village idiot compounds the problem. Idiots see Redden as the problem for getting his cash, never seeming to fully grasp that no one put a gun to the village idiot's head saying that he had better vastly overpay or else.
Your beef should be with the village idiot, not Redden.
On a side note, folks who post laughing icons or lols after they write something, as a way of saying "you're an idiot" always make me laugh at them.
Lighten up Francis...... Calling fans ignorant is over the line... However, I do agree that Redden can be effective in the NHL.. His game was never flashy with the big hits or end to end rushes.. His game was cerebral with making the smart plays with good outlet passes.
Comparing Redden with Del Zotto at even strength does make sense.. but right now Del Zotto's strength is on the Power play. He just seems like a natural raking up the points being the PP QB back there. I would think Del Zotto's even strength game will improve through the years...
