Worth a shot on tryout.
I just checked this dude out. Statistically he seems like a steal. Reason is prior to playing this offensively he was still a plus player, albeit in limited games. He improved his offense the next year but not quite as drastically and wasn't a huge minus. Then you look up his team this year and they lost more than they won. That likely means giving up more goals than they get on average. Most of the team was probably a minus. 5 players were a + the rest were even or negative, him being the worst one lol.

It's definitely some indication but a bad team no less. Back when he was a plus player in limited games his team was also a lot better:

Versus last years team:

Considering his team this other dude did great:

Next years draft probably.
