I'm looking more at the regular season when I look at these things and while plus/minus isn't the most telling stat the moose with plus/minus at minus 5 and compared to team mates really stands out and not in a good way either.
His minus 6 with the rangers in 93 is also surprising given his reputation and that he would have better years at an older age (perhaps talent support driven or simple variation or a bit of both).
