Thats depend on the circumstance.

For a defenceman, it is a good indication.


For a foward especailyl for fourth liner than ya it is not all that reflective for the performance. For example Heatley and Kovalchuk play on the same team, but Heatley has better +/-, that does tell the difference between both players.


Heatley was -8 last season

Kovalchuk was -24 last season.

That is a handsome 16 goals difference.
