All stats are flawed by the way, becasue they are affected by the other players on the ice.

I just found it funny that he mentioned that it needs to be an outlier. Tops in the league is a pretty good outlier. No-one outlies more at the moment.
So what is the context that differentiates Preissing and Jeff Schultz from being NHL league +/- leaders from Justin Schultz right now? Can we say both those guys are great defensively and were "pretty good outliers" becaus enobody could "outlie" them for 82 games?
