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

Endlessly focusing on Redden misses the point of what the disease is, and it ain't him.
Of course DelZotto will get better and he is already a good offensive dman. I was just trying to put the issue of Redden hurting the Rangers in its true perspective. He didn't help. He didn't hurt. He was a non-factor.
He is singled out for salary reasons only, not on-ice performance. Sometimes it seems like fans want him to turn in his salary, like they would ever consider doing something like that.
Remember this truism, fans turn on defensemen like clockwork, but forwards go relatively unscathed, while most fanbases like their goaltending.
why was he scratched for 2 games? it wasn't because he didn't hurt the team. overall he sucks. is he the root of the problem no, but his contract is. bottom line is he knows how much money he is making and he hasn't earned a dime of it. the most life he ever showed on the rangers was when he had words with tortorella (for being scratched). every ranger fan has a right to be pissed at him. if u dont like the thread or the "ilk" do everyone a favor and dont post anything.
