Yep, it is. David Krejci and Jeff Schultz have been the two last +/- leaders. Leading in +/- is a relatively worthless accomplishment.

Mez is a third pairing d-man who isn't putting up points. Pronger is injured and has been for a while now. Timonen, while a great d-man, isn't a big name, plays second fiddle to Pronger when healthy, and hasn't put up points either.

As for other positions, we don't have an All-Star caliber goalie. Bobrovsky has been playing average ever since his hot start and hasn't been playing much since then either and Brian Boucher is Brian Boucher. As for forwards, Richards definitely deserved to be in contention and Briere definitely deserved it more then anyone on our roster, even Giroux.
