I didn't understand your second point.
If Redden was giving away the puck all of the time (same thing I always heard about Malik), why weren't both of them horrible minus players? This a real straight-forward question that the bashers can't come to terms with. The best they usually come up with is luck. It can't always be luck. My point here isn't about Redden, specifically.
If Redden sucks ass, why don't they eat his contract? I used to read here that Strudwick was a real good dman to have. To think that he was more effective than even a bad Redden is comical.
Plus-minus isn't enough by itself to judge a player's performance, but it's a relative indicator within a team. Some players consistently operate at a minus while others consistently operate at a plus. It can't always be a coincidence.
highly highly doubtful that purintons jerseys was that popular but who cares.
you dont have to give the puck away to be a minus player. you also dont have to do too much to be a plus player. substitute me for malik and im sure i would have been a plus player too. your right +/- isnt enough to judge a players performance, which explains why no one cares about malik or reddens +/- because clearly redden is terrible a borderline 6th dman and when the fans turned on malik he was struggling bad. i was a malik supporter, i remember 1 opening night he was getting booed and had something like 3 or 4 points. i hated it, but throughout that season the guy struggled to the point where the fans hated him, it happens. if jeter can get booed in new york anyone can get booed and hated.
back to redden, i dont care what his +/- is he is as you put it a non factor. and if hes making 6.5 and being a non factor on the team he sucks.
