Am I missing something? If not then that doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me.
It makes sense in showing if a player has under- or overachieved relative to his team, but the OP's overly simple approach will exaggerate those differences, as you have shown.

A relevant +/- stat would somehow normalize a player's +/- against the team's number; maybe we need something involving a third-order equation.
