JJ's plus/minus would be better if the Kings scored more 5 on 5 goals. Tonight they scored 4 and he was a plus 1.
To be fair though, if the Kings gave up less 5-on-5 goals when JJ was on the ice, his plus/minus would be better as well. That is the whole point of the plus/minus stat. The Kings are near the top of the league in goals against, yet his plus/minus sucks, not just this year, but every year.

Voynov is ready to take over if they were to trade JJ. But I really don't think DL will trade him though. He just signed that great extension and he is considered core in my opinion.
