The +/- stat is being seriously overrated here. +31 is nicebut maybe there are other factors to that number than merely Rozsival's play. Poti is +10. Is he now a solid defensive player? Certainly not. Fact is, not one regular defenseman is a -. Maybe this says more about the system the Rangers are playing, the fact that we're actually seeing forwards backcheck and that the goaltending has been superb than it does about one defenseman's play.
