There is a lot of luck involved in +/- and GA/60 because of variation in shooting percentage. Booth doesn't play poorly enough defensively or an important enough position to justify finishing last in on ice save percentage in both those years. This is really why Corsi is good, shots produce more events than goals, making them much more reliable over a single season.
