+/- 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.
