Jason Garrison is +8 on the -16 Florida Panthers so he would be +24. +/- isn't a super big deal, but I believe that this would be an improvement and would make it so that just being on a good team won't give you a very high +/-.
That would make it so every player's a minus on a great team with a huge + goal differential, and every player a plus on a horrendous team with like a -60 goal differential.

Sorry, but this is a horrible idea to make an already hard to use stat even more useless.
