i am fairly certain that the highest plus is gretzky in '86 with 191. gretzky had 190 in '82.


some of the highest minus

doug owchar '78: 141
paul coffey '90: 140
dave babych '81: 139
gary nylund '86: 137
jocelyn guevremont '73: 130
doug lidster '87: 128
carol vadnais '76: 127
wayne gretzky '89: 126
rick lapointe '80: 126
dave ellett '86: 126
reed larson '81: 125
willie huber '82: 125
mark hardy '84: 125
barry gibbs '79: 125
jean hamel '75: 123
borje salming '84: 122
ian turnbull '81: 121
greg smith '78: 121

gretzky is the only F on the list, and i think the only player who was not a minus over that season.


if doug owchar has the highest number of minus, he would be a great trivia question.
I don't know something in these numbers just doesn't wash, How was Gretzky -126 in a season he scored 168 points and the team only gave up 324 total goals that season??
