+/- is a measure of offensive/defensive domination.

The "+" has to do with offensive domination

The "-" has to do with defensive domination

You are not awarded a "+" on the PP because it's a given that you're in a domination position.

You are not awarded a "-" on the PK because it's a given that you're being dominated.

A player with a better +/- than his team average +/- can be said to fulfill his role in a better way than the average player on his team.
