When I say outlier, I mean someone who has a high +/- on a bad defensive team that is also low-scoring where many of his teammates are in the negatives.
Or they have a very low negative +/- on a team that is decent defensively and high scoring.
For example, Brett Lebda going -3 in a 9-3 win for the Leafs is indicative of bad defense.
In Justin's case, OKC is tied for 2nd in GF in the West and Justin scores a lot of points and is involved in a lot of goals.
If anything, his +/- is more of a testament to his offensive abilities than his defensive abilities in this case.
a lot of his points have come on the pp which would not effect his +/-
