Well I don't know who that is, but I'm assuming it's someone who was a defensive liability..

Like I said.. liabilities RARELY have high +/- #s, there's always going to be the anomalies

It's like if you put goalie equipment on 1000 people off the street and make them play a game. A few of them might get shutouts, the rest will get their ***** kicked or get hurt by a puck hitting them.

It could be a sign of the rangers managing their defensemen well as well. It'd be nuts to match up our rookies versus other teams' top lines. If you do that (and I'm sure some teams do.. there's plenty of crappy coaching out there), not only will you have dmen with crappy +/-s, you'll also have a really crappy goal differential.
